(Company spokesman Bill Johnson says Potash Corp. will comply with all the recommendations and incorporate them into training.

He says one accident is too many and the company spends a lot of time and takes the safety of its facilities very seriously).

I got news for ya Bill yer message ain't gettin down to middle management and front line supervisors
very well cause they have all kinds of excuses to cover there behinds.
And as long as you have the OH+S branch in your pocket,siding with you on 90% of all concerns,safety will always take a back seat to PRODUCTION !!!.

Well fruithead,I sure hope we don't read about ya in a "flash report" because you ignored one of those safety regulations.
Or are you still..."bullet-proof "

I was on an OH+S commitee in 99 and had to get a young man out from under a 1500 lb slab and ship him off to the morgue because we didn't have good enough "safety regulations" then.Thankfully we do now.
So please,no more singing about the hindrance of safety regulations.
