Barbaric Corporate Culture

Manual labor has been one of the most common victims of occupational hazards over the years. For some reasons, some employers and companies find no problem in compromising the health and safety of their employees. Under the law and professional ethics, this should never be the case. All workers should be seen - and treated - as a company’s most valuable assets, worth more than any material possession.

Unfortunately, a growing trend of corporate culture has been in the seams for a while now. Employers seem to be more interested in speeding up the work load of employees in order to make bigger profits for themselves. In the end, the ones getting the most benefit are those who sit in offices and merely overlook the operations in the workplace, while the manual laborers are exposed to a myriad of workplace hazards - improper or inadequate personal protective equipment, dangerous machinery, no first aid help available in the vicinity, and other circumstances which can cause different injuries, even illnesses (in the presence of certain harmful or toxic substances), and in the worst of cases, deaths. One case which embodies what we are trying to say here is Fred Hosier’s report on the 29-mendeathtollin 2011, where a mining company has been sued for a number of safety violations leading to the mass loss of lives.

Majority of these mishaps can be easily and properly controlled - deaths and injuries can be considerably prevented from happening. All that there is to it really is to have the company adhere to the corresponding workplace safety and health guidelines for all workers as specified by the OSHA. Certain trainings and certifications may also be necessary, all depending on the kind of industry or the line of work involved. All employers must keep in mind that more than making money, they require the services of skilled workers - the very people who make all of their operations possible in the first place. It is only ethical and professional to give them the proper safety assurance and the right compensation for their work.
