Just a question that was on my mind tonight.
Because as a high school graduate you have shown competency in reading and writing and basic math. And Employers can then require you to utilize those skills without excuse by employee for any injuries resulting from not paying attention to the warning signs.
Also such things as making change for cash purchases, three scoops for sanitation. Test strips coming up blue. Danger High Voltage...
If you have a diploma you can't Sue your employer when you stick your hand into an electrical panel because you couldn't read the sign. Also comes in handy for the stickers on the side of ladders. Counting inventory and etc.
there was NO remedial math , reading and writing in college in the early 90s and before and now you test and they will place you in those Before you even start college level. I had to retake that and did so with 18 year olds JUST graduated. basic algebra, English literature and also reading courses(which tested in college).Good point, but I think that most high school students can already read, write, and perform simple math.
This is not necessarily true. I served on our company's product safety committee for a few years. One day, our corporate attorney visited us and he explained that it is not possible to completely remove all liability from our products, no matter what we do. All we can do is reduce the level of liability. In fact, he told us that we can go too far with safety to the point where the guards and other safety features actually become the hazard.If you have a diploma you can't Sue your employer when you stick your hand into an electrical panel because you couldn't read the sign.
