Brutus - I think you have a fair point, but I would also add that darn near everyone who has ever worked in an industrial, agricultural, or construction setting has put themselves in a situation which violated OSHA standards, individual company rules, common sense, and all of the above, due to pressure from employers or just to "get the job done."
Unfortunately, it's the way some people are wired.
Below is video of the 1999 crane disaster at Miller Park in Milwaukee. What doesn't often get told in the Miller Park story is that a crew of operators and laborers had refused to begin work that day due to the windy conditions. One of the "bosses" dismissed them from the job and found a crew that would do the job in those conditions, even though they violated the crane manufacturers specifications for operating. (Remember that this project was already way behind schedule and over budget at this point.) And 3 construction workers lost their lives because of it.
If that crane hadn't failed, nothing would have ever been known about the situation. It happens everyday in dangerous work settings, very sadly.
