More ironies:  Accident prevention foundation fined for failing to take safety measures

The Industrial Foundation for Accident Prevention in India has been penalized  $121,000 for not taking safety measures while training employees. A sudden blast severely burned  6 trainees.  Apparently safety rules were violated in part because IFAP was warned not to conduct the training at the farm as it was not  suitable. The Magistrate  stated that it was an accident and as the explosion was not carried out purposely,  the guilty could not be considered to have conducted a serious crime.

Comment: Respectfully, Madame Magistrate, I disagree: not taking safety measures is a purposeful act.
