Why are workplace tragedies not considered a crime?

Whenever there is bank robbery or shooting, the criminals are arrested and punished according to law. But whenever an employer ignores workplace safety and causes a worker to be injured or killed on the job, anyone hardly gets arrested. Why does the justice system protect executives?

The main goals of the criminal law are punishment and deterrence. The prosecutors’ responses to criminal behavior in the workplace are very weak. Mostly, workplace deaths and injuries are represented as ‘accidents’. The workers die due to a dangerous workplace. Managers don’t take the necessary precautionary actions to make the workplace safe.

If a worker dies due to a collapse of the trench, the truth is that managers didn’t take the necessary precautions for the work to complete the work faster. These managers believe that they can save money by cutting corners on worker health. They think the cost of injuries as part of their business costs.

The Bacardi bottling facility incident

An incident occurred at the Bacardi bottling facility in August 2012 when a worker Lawrence Davis died on his first day at work due to the negligence of the employer. He was asked to join work within 15 minutes of his arrival without any training. As a machine malfunctioned, several bottles broke, and he was asked to clean up the mess. He wasn’t given any safety training. While he was cleaning up the area underneath the machine, the machine suddenly started working and crushed him to death. No major punishment was given to the company authority. They only paid a find of $110,000.

You will find many such incidents. On average, more than 4,600 workers are killed every year on the job throughout the nation. The laws must be stricter to protect these employees.
