You're right. I've been reluctant to discuss my workplace in print - particularly since two of our own were discovered making inappropriate comments on Facebook.
No company is perfect, but we do do a lot that's right. For example, our uncompromising, aggressive approach to Safety training. As with any public organization, we've had our fair share of tragedy. But(!) at the same time, lives have been saved by employees' instinctive response.
So we train, and re-train: from blood-borne pathogens (eeeew!) ... to CPR/AED -- including monthly emergency reenactments, etc.
And yes.... there's one in every crowd.
A while back, I'd not been told (or, wasn't paying attention) re. an upcoming drill. Overhearing the "Code 3" radio transmission I summoned the "real" 9-1-1 by mistake. 'Caught a lot of kidding over that little incident!
Honestly, I hope I'll never have to use my training. Deep down, I'm leery - not about catching some dread disease; rather, of goofing up.
Still, having lost two loved ones to coronary heart disease, I want to urge everyone to become ~ and stay! ~ certified in CPR/AED.

Yes, you can!
