Illusion of safety?
- editorial, Las Vegas Sun
As detailed in Tuesday’s Las Vegas Sun by Alexandra Berzon, the reports suggest that Perini seems satisfied with an illusion of safety. Management was criticized for failing to make safety a priority. Workers are blamed for accidents and fired for failing to follow safety regulations. Yet supervisors and management are not held accountable for safety, the report said.
In one instance, the report notes that a Perini safety official walked over a hole, went up a damaged ladder and saw a worker without safety glasses. The worker was sent home, but neither the hole nor the ladder was fixed.
