You can’t engineer things for every prospective lapse in judgement.

When it comes to protecting people from fast-moving machinery, the Ontario Ministry of Labour demands that every factory in Hamilton do just that. And, indeed, every single factory in Hamilton does engineer things for industrial safety to design out harm due to every prospective lapse in judgement. Ditto for railway safety. Ditto for airline safety.

If there is a failure to properly design the workplace so that human beings are not properly protected and guarded from fast-moving machinery, the government of Ontario immediately shuts down that workplace until it is redesigned so that human beings are protected from every prospective lapse in judgement around fast-moving machinery.

But somehow, as soon as the worker walks out the factory door, the government fails to ensure that he is protected to the same standard of safety on our streets. Let's change that!
