Quote of the Week

This week's winner is Philadelphia OSHA's Kate Dugan. In the Philadelphia Inquirer article about the death of Jeffrey Martin that I just reviewed below, she was quoted as follows:
"Our mission isn't to find a cause for an accident," spokeswoman Kate Dugan said. "Our mission is to find if there were any violations of safety and health standards.
One can only hope that there's generally a relationship between causes and violations. Otherwise, what's the point?

Congratulations Kate. If we had Confined Space T-shirts, I'd send you one. As it is, you'll just have to be satisfied with the thanks of a greatful readerhip.
