[Histonet] Safety regs/Pathologists

All well and true - unless one is caught, at which time the thousands of
dollars that one may be fined should then be paid by the person not
following the rules? 

Perhaps you don't have these strict measures with fines? 

It's also a real nightmare for managers who must make their staff follow the
rules. j

Although Bill's views may sound rather prima donna-ish to some, I must
support him.
Safety procedures and practices have become rather petty, tedious, and in my
view, sometimes more dangerous than the perceived danger designed for.
Goggles prevent you seeing well - dangerous.
Feather blade holders prevent you sensing where the blade is - dangerous.
Safety hoods/cabinets prevent you seeing or doing anything in other than a
clumsy way - dangerous, and so on.
Let sense rule over nonsense.

NB - this is NOT in any way anti-safety.

As a Pathologist and Physician, I try to never let regulations get in 
the way of my caring for patients. With 12 years of intensive 
education after high school and several decades of experience I 
claim, nay, demand the right to decide how to behave in a clinical 
setting for myself without interference of bureaucrats or
