Isn't there a law against causing a worker to do wrong? In this case I forewarned my boss and he could have created a serious hazard. When a near miss is written, the root cause is investigated and corrected in hopes of avoiding the problem in the future. Are you saying in an another example that if my employer told me to endanger my co-worker by doing an unsafe act I could still get written up for it and lose my job? I say that because what he told me to do was "at risk" behavior. I don't understand there to be any validity of what you conveyed to me. Seeing OSHA yes but the other no.
Your last reply became more clear about OSHA. Would reporting to them be more of a deterrant for future retaliation and would it possibly effect the present outcome? Legally speaking?
Please accept my apology with the "validity" uncetainty I wasn't sure if you understood the circumstance. You did expound more about OSHA after I said that which penetrated my thinking better. The law isn't perfect in everyone's way of thinking so it takes a pry bar to break away layers of bent up pride or frustration to arrive at truth.
