  • its an insult to everyone that has worked their to say the company killed these two employees! i know both accidents were human error shit head! These whinny bitches would rather cry about how bad it is yet don't have the balls to do something about it. What you all forget is you work for them STUPID so if you are not happy move on losers! Only company i know where you car wright your own pay check! If you want a 30 hour week work at Tims .

Anyone on the outside with unbiased opinions and common sense, like myself, knows there are 2 sides to every story. And reading through this dialogue and taking into account all other comments, I definitely would never accept a job at Griffin. Thanks for all the comments everyone. Very useful.

They purchased a proper forklift after Jim's incedent....duh???

duh??? They have not used forklifts to lift people for years

Your so right about proper use of equipment, that is why they purchased a PROPER forklift, after the incident!

It's called "socialist" government. Take money from those that are able to pay. Just another form of taxation used to fund corrupt programs.

here is the link they were fined for a safety VIOLATION

You seem to be happy with half the story. No equipment is safe if you don't use it right.

The human error involved was the company did not have the proper forklift for the job, as usual!!!!!! After that, they put in a claim to have the roof fixed, due to the explosion!

Got any other facts you would like to share or is that hush hush.

Sorry, you just don't know the facts

involved company error, end of story

Posted on 21 December 2011

Too bad you never lets the facts get in the way of a good story - you have obviously never seen the reports! The first accident invovled two employees who knew that they were taking a shortcut, the second accident was more complicated, and yes did involve human error. Get the facts or keep your mouth shut!

how can you say they were human error when they were killed by doing an accepted company practice. The company told them to do their job like that and thats why they got fined. wheels first, saftey second

nobody at griffin can write their own paycheck, what are you talking about. maybe lots of forced overtime gives you a large paycheck but at what price? (no life) if this co. does not get what they want in the contract they threaten to close the plant. we have tried to get rid of forced overtime but they will NOT give it up. do you want a big STRIKE. maybe close the plant. then nobody wins.

100,000.00 was the maximum fine that could be given. i think workplace health and safety increased it because of incidents like these.

Posted on 14 December 2011

some people thrive on abuse abusing. you belong at griffin. maybe your foreman material. i hope you wear a respirator, that is if you like your lungs.

Posted on 14 December 2011

this person shows their ignorance by calling people names. employees are supposed to work for their employer not die for their employer. the employer is responsible to provide a safe workplace. they didn`t. the dangerous practices that contributed to these deaths are no longer allowed.

i smell a union rep

Posted on 14 December 2011
