There is a part of me that agrees with what you write, but it assumes the natural "goodness" of mankind. There are employers that would expect their employees to cut corners and employees that cut corners on their own. It happens every day. There are always ways to make things more safe, and when people aren't "forced" to think about them, they default to the easiest way. My best anecdotal example of this is that my company has adopted a no energized work without upper management approval. We are new construction commercial and industrial. As a project manager, I merely inform my customer that I will require a written, signed letter explaining WHY the work they are requesting must be performed without turning power off. Most of the time, they decide that they can accommodate a power outage when the other option is THEIR signature.
