** ''Burial at Sea'', set in Rapture again, takes the cavalier attitude towards safety to a whole new level with the Radar Range, a handheld microwave emitter named after the first real-life microwave oven and marketed for the same purpose. Not only is it a deadly weapon in the wrong hands, as one man discovered when his kid accidentally nuked the family dog, but it's laughably inconvenient. Even modern, high-wattage microwave ovens take upwards of a minute to reheat a meal; who wants to stand there holding a raygun at their dinner for that long? It'd be like making toast by holding a wooden torch over a plate of bread.

** Many of the [[{{Precursors}} Forerunner]] structures lack guardrails and other safety features. And that's not even getting into [[SealedEvilInACan how easily the Covenant mistakenly released the Flood]]. Funnily enough, there is exactly ''ONE'' Forerunner structure with guardrails in ''{{VideoGame/Halo 4}}''. They line the path to the elevator in the level "Reclaimer", during which there is nothing around to hurt you. In all the other more dangerous areas, this trope is played straight.
** The lack of such safety features on Forerunner structures is {{justified|Trope}}, however: Forerunners wore [[TwentyFourHourArmor advanced armor]] (some [[FantasticCasteSystem Rates]] like Lifeworkers and Promethean Warrior-Servants, who were the primary inhabitants of most Forerunner installations encountered so far, even wore armor that allowed them to float) which would negate any clumsiness, and Forerunner security systems were more than capable of snatching anyone who fell mere seconds afterward.

*** The Literature/HonorHarrington series, which has many Trek references, repeatedly shows what would really happen if "inertial compensators" failed even momentarily on a ship accelerating at hundreds of gravities: everyone in the ship gets turned into "strawberry jam". Minor structural damage.

Almost every such complex includes a tower or shaft several dozen feet wide and hundreds of feet tall/deep, ringed with balconies and walkways from which one can easily slip, and at least one retractable bridge that doesn't seem to ''care'' if there is anybody on it before it retracts.

retracts. The bridges are often made of components whose (lack of) strength make supermarket plastic shopping bags look like they're made of kevlar by comparison.

* The set of the in-universe show of ''Disney/{{Bolt}}'' has some egregious safety violations. For one thing, there is apparently no fire suppression system ''and'' the set is highly flammale--when some torches are accidentally knocked over, it goes up like flypaper. This is on the set of a modern TV show... one imagines the unions for actors and stagehands would have been sending the studio some ''very'' strong letters afterwards.

* Somewhat inverted with the dangerous but somehow nonfatal paternoster, or "cyclic elevator", an elevator invented in the late 1800s in England. The paternoster is named after the first two words of the Lord's Prayer in Latin (Our Father) in reference to rosary beads, which the paternoster's string of cars resembles. The paternoster consists of a string of cars that are attached to a chain that circulates around two elevator shafts, [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/85/Paternoster_animated.gif one going up and the other going down]]The elevator cars do not flip over at the top or bottom - they instead stay upright and cycle over to the shaft going the other direction. The paternoster's main claims to infamy are its lack of doors and the fact that it ''never stops''. Yet despite its frightening setup, the paternoster elevator has killed just five people from 1970 to the present day. However, frightened governments have banned the construction of new paternosters and many building managers have phased out existing ones. Today only around 40 paternosters are left, with none in the US.

High above, a crane swings round errantly, just waiting to drop [[AccordionMan random heavy objects on your head]] (or, if you're ''really'' unlucky, to ''collide'' with your head). Billows of smoke and steam belch from every other vent, and unidentified liquids drip unimpeded from somewhere high overhead to lubricate the already tenuous footing on the substandard walkways. Guardrails, if they're present at all, are flimsy and prone to breakage or collapse if anything close to a normal human's weight is put on them, making a RailingKill a very real danger.
