It was just convenient to have this two news item on top of each other.
So many industrial accidents this month? Why? Can you imagine how many sigma events these are? Without evidence, my baseline approach is to hold forth with the simplest explanation: Cowboys. In other words people fail to follow procedures. The industrial culture outside our manufacturing plants is terrible. There is also one name that stood out for poor and sloppy work: SMRT. I would expect a former Chief of Defence Force to do better and quickly too. SMRT as I posted to this blog before is run by a bunch of idiots.
