The Company Comes First
Companies will spend a fortune to train their companies on safe practices. They do this so that there aren’t work-related accidents, so everyone can go home with the same number of fingers and limbs they came into the factory with. However, you should know that these safe practices, and HR departments for that matter, aren’t there for you.
Safety procedures exist for the benefit of the company. We guarantee that if something happens at the workplace, in-house lawyers will bend over backward to try and place blame on the injured victim. The kindest thing a company will do is either give you a few weeks off to recover or a settlement check. They’ll also push a contract under your nose that, when signed, frees the company of any wrongdoing.
