*** This could possibly be explained as using less metal to create the Death Star, making it less expensive.

** The entire park relies exclusively on electric fences to keep the dinosaurs penned in. Did Hammond honestly not consider the possibility that something as prone to temporary failures as electricity would not be enough on its own? Hammond seriously intenteds to operate a family-oriented theme park that will always be just one power outage away from disaster. ** You would also think Hammond would keep a well-armed security force on standby in case any dinosaurs escape, but nope. The park appears to have no full time security guards.

** According to the book, the backup generator did not have sufficient power to run the fences on the animal paddocks. Which means that losing main power for more than a few minutes (Even for things like planned maintenance) brings a non-trivial risk of the animals breaking out. And the mechanisms used to make sure that the controllers are aware that the system is on backup power (And that the backup generator was running out of fuel) were clearly inadequate, as nobody remembered any of this until the backup generator shut down.

* ''VideoGame/SchizmMysteriousJourney'' deals with an alien culture that apparently never understood OSHA to begin with. To reach their main temple, you have to cross some extremely precarious catwalks with no handrails, and a very long staircase.

** Decades before, in 1947, Texas City had an even larger explosion. It started like this: A Liberty ship moored to a pier was loading sacks of ammonium nitrate intended as fertiliser. It wasn't even fully loaded yet, and it had ''2500 tons'' aboard piled up in huge stacks of sacks — no compartmentation, no distribution of the mass into separate bodies. Nobody at the scene understood the explosive nature of ammonium nitrate (despite a history of ammonium nitrate explosions). Ammonium nitrate, in humid air, can begin to self-ignite, which this load began to do. So the captain followed a time-honoured procedure: he had the holds sealed and pumped full of live steam to extinguish the fire. Not only did he not know the explosive nature of what he was carrying, he didn't know (even though chemists could have told him it was old news) that the resulting combination of heat, pressure, and moisture would make the nitrate even more unstable. So … *boom*. Oh, it gets worse. Texas City was a massive conglomeration of just about every possible industrial product that could burn or explode, with safety precautions and procedures being about as rigorous as cooked noodles. The pier that the ''Grandcamp'' was moored to? Only a couple of hundred feet from the fence line of a petroleum refinery, and a few hundred yards from a tank farm. Oh, and the warehouse from which it was being loaded? Conveniently right next to the dock, with $DEITY only knows how much nitrate standing there in sacks. On the other side? A paint factory loaded with all kinds of volatile solvents.

* The crash of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Airlines_Flight_191 American Airlines Flight 191]] was caused by American Airlines not following the recommended method of replacing the wing mounted engines on DC-10s. The investigation revealed American Airlines wasn't the only airline that was engaging in that practice.

* The crash of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Airlines_Flight_191 American Airlines Flight 191]] was caused by American Airlines not following the recommended method of replacing the wing mounted engines on DC-10s. DC-10s — namely, instead of removing first the engine, and then a mounting pylon with a specialized jack they've removed them as a unint using a simple forklift. ''Hand controlled'' forklift, and if there's a surer way to enventually crack an engine mounting, nobody has found it yet. The investigation revealed American Airlines wasn't the only airline that was engaging in that practice.practice. ** United Airlines also removed the engine and the pylon as a unit, but they've used an overhead hoist that made the correct positioning of the parts much easier, and, indeed, no United DC-10 showed any damage to pylons, while with the American's and Continental's ones the damage was endemical. It's a mystery why this much safer and easier procedure wasn't adopted by all airlines, especially as using a forklift was a chore and was universally hated by the maintenance workers.

** In Draenor there is a city called Skyreach built into the side of a mountain. Nothing stops you from just walking off the edge of paths. Even indoors, there are holes in the floors with a drop of hundreds of feet. However, in this particular case it's justified because it is built by and inhabited by Arakkoa, who are a race of BirdPeople.

No need for safety features when the inhabitants can fly, and they don't (normally) allow outsiders in the city anyway.

* ''Series/OobiAtWork'' is mainly set in the aptly-titled Work Building, a workplace run by foolish Boss. The building's standards for hiring workers are revealed to be "Will they work for any cost?" and the environment is shown to be less-than-appealing (workers can park "anywhere they please," allowing for Oobi to park in front of the main stairs).

Also, is this facility ''really'' abandoned? Where is the electricity that runs this place coming from? If it was abandoned, they'd have stopped paying the bills and the place would be dead, dead, dead. If the place is still powered, how are they getting electricity when no one is paying for it? Electric companies tend to be very mercenary about disconnecting for non-payment, especially in the case of an industrial facility where the minimum bill for the size of the power connection to the grid to support that level of operation could easily be tens of thousands of U.S. Dollars ''a month''.
