Jim’s in a hurry and his boss wants something done immediately, so he’s not paying attention to where he’s maneuvering his forklift and he backs into a rack full of parts and boxes.
As metal beams come crashing down on him from a high shelf, his supervisor yells, “Call 911! There’s been an accident.” A grievously injured Jim stands up and reminds us that it was not an accident: “The company knows it’s against code to store that much weight up there.”
In reply to commenters who complained that Jim caused his own injuries by backing into the shelf, one person said, “He wasn't shifting blame. The company and the supervisor are responsible for knowing the workplace safety codes. When he said, ‘The company knows it's against code to store that much weight up there,’ he means that the company should have not stored so much weight up there. And the supervisor is responsible for reporting issues, i.e., that broken shelf.”
