I feel sad for the cat in the microwave Rasmus mentioned in the class yesterday.
also for the old lady, the owner of the cat who has no intention to boil her cat.
Come to think about it, the case gives us a picture of how dangerous and hazardous it is to let someone operate whatever machine without knowledge. But to what extent does one need to know?
A safety precautions and other things related to health are seriously necessary, and I wonder if the old lady should have at least basic knowledge of how microwave works (how things get heated up inside that closed door).
I doubt if the safety precautions would include -do not use microwave to dry cat.
Sometimes, some incidents are beyond what we could think of at the first place, (error in anticipation).
One way to deal with this situation is to make a person by himself, be concious and curious and be aware of the situation, of what he is doing. Always ask for second opinion or refer to the manual when in doubt.
Most imporatantly, company must be responsible to educate their employees and take health & Safety seriously, putting in place and preventive measure to prevent any loss or damage.
If we lost a person it does not mean we lost only one life, because that person could be a whole world to someone.
