I'm sure the same thing happened with your company when the person was catapicated (??). Someone sued your company, or OSHA had a fit, & your company put rules in place to keep people from getting catapicated (??) again. Those rules may not be followed as closely as the NFL is following their rules, most likely because you don't have weekly televised broadcast of everyday work practices.
But let someone else get catapicated (??) & I bet they'll enforce their rules then.
You have to sign a waiver with your new hire paperwork saying the company is not liable for loss of life, it is that way with 95% of all oilfield companies. i think the exception is off shore companies.
But that wasnt really my point, all these has been players who are now broke are suing the NFL, not a big surprise. Kinda like that burgular 5-10 years ago who fell on a knife in this ladies kitchen while breaking into her house and sued her and won. I mean we can all agree our legal system has become a big joke.
