    I think every safety mans vest should say " Hello my name is safety tool. I dont know anything about how you do your job or why, but my book says your doing it wrong."

    Why was he allowed to be around the lift and whats more calling out suggestions. I would have thought that unless something manifestly unsafe was happening, he should not be interfering with the personnel trying to coordinate such a task.

    Just my 2c :)

    We had a civilian employee who worked for training evaluations at Ft Knox while I was teaching Armor tactics to new officers. The guy was changing how we evaluated the students about every 90 days. He took a leave of absents so he could take another college course. While he was gone all the major commands had us instructors write new evaluation standards for our students. They did an eval on that, found that the standards were higher yet were still fair. When the guy returned his job had been cut! Kinda sounds like some of the safety guys out there. Coming up with new ideas to justify thier position.
