Safe working conditions are a requirement of a government organization called OSHA that is already in place. They are extremely powerful and have open phones lines. If you haven't dealt with them, you couldn't possibly imagine the damage they can do to employers if they find you endangering lives. Or even not pro actively making safety your top priority. More and more people realize this service is offered, and they're already paying for it. Unions are a dinosaur when it comes to " protecting workers".
