From the Annals of Employee Protection: Safety Last!

Here is an excerpt from the notes of an employee safety committee at the city of Philadelphia:

…some dust particles were able to get into the eyes of a worker that was cutting…on a table saw. The employee did not go to the clinic and another employee was able to remove the visible particles. The following week the employee experienced discomfort and blurred vision…

Who knew that blue-collar workers could perform medical procedures on the job as well as working with power tools?!?  But is that any more surprising than wily dust particles stealthily making their way into the eyes of city employees?

Now, some incredulous souls may be wondering whether the city has safety procedures in place.  Well, of COURSE they have a safety policy!!!  Do you expect them to comply with it as well???

The doctor is IN!  Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk…

The doctor is IN! Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk…
