Don't make an argument that light curtains are "too fancy" when your bathroom paper towel dispenser has presence sensing devices!!!!

Stepping up on my soap box...  Some people filling the role of safety person need to take a long look in the mirror.  If you do not believe your role in the organization is the most important then how in the hell do you expect anyone else to believe it.  Stop looking to management to prop you up and take charge of the safety movement and be a leader!!
