Safety culture overreaches

Safety culture overreaches and stymies the lab. We all know it.

Adults must wear bicycle helmets on site.
And on a similar note:
Parents Must Sign Permission Slip Before Kids Can Eat Oreos


Safety Nazi says "No science for you!" Take ladder training.

You are a prime example of the cowboy culture that has ruined the labs. You think you are sooo smart. Remember what Secretary of Energy Samuel Bodman said, when asked who is to blame for the problems at the labs, "arrogance of scientists". How do you people get such big egos? You people do not earn enough money to justify saying you are so great. The hammer needs to be brought down on you.

The exageration of the assurance culture since 2000 has reduced not improved lab performance.

And to think, people believed that the phrase "Work Free Safety Zone" was a joke when it appeared back around 2004 under Pete Nanos at LANL.

It wasn't just a joke. It's an ongoing reality.

Compliance is all that matters now.

Productivity?
Creativity?
Scientific output?

Not so much.

Either get with the zero-defect six-sigma safety culture or get out. It's a simple as that.

There is no room for the remaining cowboys and butt-heads at the weapon labs. Learn to practice the zero-defect six-sigma safety culture like your job depends on it, because it does.

You use the meaningless phrase "six-sigma" repeatedly, like a mantra of some obscure but nonetheless absurd religion. You have no idea what the term really refers to, nor do you really care. It is just your "OHMMM" kind of mindless drug. Sad.

Adam Rowen a manager in Sandia Labs does not have a Ph.D. They split up his group. You should hear some of the things that the current staff members have to say about Adam Rowen!
