And those 55 are simply the ones that have been brought to our attention through various personal and media contacts. There are certainly others that have gone unreported. They should not remain anyone's secret.....
Reflecting on those very troubling and very sad accidents, our industry must come to the realization that much more needs to be done in order to bring that number down in a meaningful way.
One sure way to do so, is for management and labor to jointly renounce the apparent "race to the bottom" that has been consuming their thoughts (and lives) in quest of the holy grail of production nirvana.
