[Histonet] Safety regs/Pathologists

I can't give you some examples of reg violations because:

1 	My pathologists (and scientific & Technical staff) aren't allowed to
break Regs.
2.	I can't remember any specific cases in the past. They probably were
there but possibly  before Regs came into force. If we did find something
that was unsafe, we introduced Safe Working Practices to ensure staff

Can you give examples where the regs are ridiculous and are counter to
common sense?

Otherwise, follow the Regs and chances are you will not be injured!

Oh Please. Common sense rules. Not regulations.

I've received about 10 threats about fines, loss of privilages, jail, 
etc. I thinks some specifics are in order this make this discussion 

Give me some examples of regulation violations by Pathologists that 
have put your lives at risk.
