Safety procedures are studied and enacted for a reason: safety. This is especially true in high-risk jobs like firefighting, policing and construction. Unfortunately, there will always be companies that put profit and deadlines ahead of their workers' lives. It is due to this sad reality that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration regularly updates its safety guidelines and investigates employers that fail to implement them. One such employer was found to have ignored the safety guidelines and several workers paid the price.
