* In ''Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove'', the lever that flips you into Yzma's secret lab is right next to a lever opening a trapdoor to a [[SharkPool crocodile pit]]. {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d when Yzma's henchman pulls the wrong lever. Returning from her trip to the pool, the alligator-encumbered Yzma says, "[[InventionalWisdom Why do we even]] ''[[InventionalWisdom have]]'' [[InventionalWisdom that lever?]]" ([[BrickJoke Kuzco would also like to know]].)

* In ''Film/WarCraft2016'', Kirin Tor seems to have no railings whatsoever, which is especially problematic in that it's a city made of platforms floating hundreds of metres aboveground. Presumably, the magical inhabitants of Kirin Tor don't see the need for it, as they can turn into birds, teleport or cast shield long before hitting the ground.

* ''Film/HoneyIShrunkTheKids'': Wayne Szalinski has his shrink ray facing the attic door, and keeps the door unlocked even after it's established that the machine doesn't work yet (it blows things up). ''While there are minors in the house.''

* ''VideoGame/MightyNumberNine'' fares little better in the employee safety department, though it's vaguely justified in that the robots who ran the place have [[AIIsACrapshoot gone rogue]] and are actively trying to kill any intruders.

** 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.

*** The mosasaur pool, like any aquatic animal show, has stadium seating. ''Presumably'', the dino can't get out of the pool, but the climax of the movie reveals it can leap out to ground-level (that is, ''over the top of the seats'') whenever it pleases. That's a lot of crushed and[=/=]or eaten guests if it ever gets peckish during a show!
*** The ''Indominus'' is kept in a pen with severely deficient security cameras --it can easily hide from them at its leisure-- and security is staffed by a single, inattentive, out-of-shape guard. The pen itself, while admittedly meant to be temporary, has neither the moat of its predecessors nor a double-door access corridor like the current raptor pen does, so the ''Indominus'' only needs to slip out one door to break free.

*** Once again, a lackluster security force. Although a special capture unit is sent to hunt down the Indominus Rex, the park itself is completely unguarded, there are no proper evacuation procedures, immediate access to shelters, or even trained personnel to assist visitors in emergency situations.

** In ''Film/{{Alien}}'', the Nostromo has obnoxious strobe lights and steam jets that have no apparent purpose other than to make life difficult once the self-destruct protocol is initiated.

*** The Nostromo is a hauling ship, and its crew are glorified space truckers. It makes economic sense to put just a bare minimal crew to comply with whatever standards there may be for space travel, and if something actually did go wrong, the AI could probably bring the ship home all by itself (while not being allowed to do so during "normal operation").

* The board where celebrities sat on ''Series/TheMatchGameHollywoodSquaresHour'' was the least safe out of any version of ''Squares'' considering the second and third rows would be wheeled in behind the ''Match Game'' panel.
* The set of the unsold game show pilot ''Cop Out!'' was light-bulb heavy, especially around where the host, the celebrities and the contestants were positioned. Since they were exposed to said bulbs for the duration of the taping, they had to be treated for first and second degree burns immediately after production had finished. The huge letters in the show's title positioned above the playing area also posed a hazard to anyone on stage who sat directly below them.
--> "If the letter O falls out of OUT, its going to take out at least two celebrities."



* The [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triangle_Shirtwaist_Factory_fire Triangle Shirtwaist Fire of 1911]] helped to create this trope. The owners of the factory had locked the doors to prevent the women inside from taking unauthorized breaks, which led to a massive loss of life when a fire broke out inside. Many of the women chose to leap to their deaths from upper-floor windows rather than burn inside. The resulting backlash created many of the laws that OSHA would later enforce.

* The RMS ''Titanic'' was actually a subversion of this. The ship was in full compliance with the maritime safety regulations of the day. Ships of over 10,000 tons required sixteen liftboats and ''Titanic'' actually carried four more than required. However, the problem was that said regulations had last been updated eighteen years prior and failed to take into account the size-increase in shipbuilding.

* ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'' plays this straight [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/d/20010311.html by blowing up athletes]]. Thanks to 31st century medical technology, however, that's just AmusingInjuries. Much later on, there's also the NUSPI, an old bit of LostTechnology that, while ''quite'' effective once its full potential is discovered, has the downside of heavily irradiating the entire compartment the weapon is housed in. The acronym stands for [[BlackHumor No User-Serviceable Parts Inside]]; they didn't test it out much for this exact reason.

** [[Series/StarTrekVoyager Voyager]] takes this to eleven, then goes to idiotic extremes so it seems that the ship was designed to kill its crew before anything else. Manual door overrides don't work when there isn't power. The only system in the ENTIRE ship that has its own power supply (that is incompatible with the rest of the ship, somehow) isn't the important things like the shields, weapons, or replicators, but the Holodecks (which always were [[HolodeckMalfunction trying to kill the crew as well]]), in a laughable plot contrivance to allow holodeck episodes to still happen even though power conservation is essential for a ship decades away from proper resupply facilities. Never even remotely explained is how the holodeck's power source can possibly be incompatible with the replicators, given that ''all holodecks have built-in replicators''. Most of the ship wiring is "gel packs," living tissues that they only have a very limited supply of (and can't replicate nor actually grow, missing the one benefit that a biological system would have over a metallic one) that once was poisoned by Neelix's [[LethalChef cooking]]. The one time the ship wasn't on the edge of exploding was when an enemy shot out the "secondary command modules," preventing Janeway from having the ship self destruct when it was boarded (and the computer only informed her of this fact AFTER she tried to initiate a self destruct).
