Safety First

The general manager at work has some of the best stories.  The following is one:

I was working at the Trojan Nuclear Plant (about 30 miles outside of Portland) many years ago, and we had one of those tallies that counted the days since the last accident.  The company had a policy for giving out rewards after hitting certain benchmarks, like 6 months, 9 months, etc.  We were coming up on a big one, and the company decided to get us sweatshirts.   We thought, "Hey, that's pretty cool."  A subcommittee was formed to design the sweatshirt.  They must not have done a very good job reviewing it, because when we got them, no one would wear it.  First of all, it was pink and none of the men were going to wear that.  Secondly, the writing on the front said TROJAN SAFETY.
