r/Maliciouscompliance I Cost My Boss $3,500,000 By Obeying Him

r/Maliciouscompliance In today's episode, OP's factory enacts an incredibly stupid new policy that requires them to lock down dozens of machines to do simple, 10-minute repair jobs. OP warns his boss that this will be a pointlessly expensive procedure, but his boss tells him to just do as he's told. OK, boss, sure thing! OP follows his orders and shuts down half the factory to fix one tiny little part, costing the company $3,500,000. Oops!

  • From what the first story is describing, this "machine" is many machines working in tandem, and if someone needs to perform maintenance on one of the machines the process needs to be stopped and the Hazardous Energies contained or otherwise mitigated such that it is safe for humans. It sounds like it was determined the machine could not be rendered safe at a "per station" level, so it required making the entire machine safe. You can thank OSHA's guidelines for this BS ridiculousness and all the idiotic/careless/unfortunate people who were injured on the job (and sued) which prompted such guidelines.

  • I truly believe the first story to be true because almost the exact same thing happened in a factory I worked at. The factory packaged a food product in sterile PE coated cardboard cartons(very similar to cardboard milk cartons). The cartons are sealed with essentially hot glue which is melted in an approximately 5 gallon pot and then pumped through a filter screen and then through hose that went to the glue nozzle in the machine. Anyway 3 maintenance mechanics out of 6 on duty were working on changing the filter screen mid-run because it was plugged (frequent occurance). They had locked out power to the glue pot which was mounted on the side of the machine away from all other moving parts of the machine. They left the rest of the machine on so the positive pressure system that kept the inside sterile would continue to run otherwise it would have to be re-sterilized which took half a shift. New manager sees them doing this and suspends all of them for three days. So for the next few days those of us that remained started locking out entire machines not just components. We were so mad about this we made it a goal to get down time over 90%. We refused to back down until the suspended workers got back payed for their suspension. Best part is the maintenance managers were behind us and would give us ideas like "Oh you're going into the freezer? You'd better thaw it out first just to be safe."

  • Former Shipboard Marine Engineer here. We took LOTO seriously. Thing is, every person performing repairs could use a "day tag/lock" if the work took no longer than the person stayed on station. If the person had to leave station for ANY reason, such as breaks, lunch, etc... then it HAD to be officially locked out. The original story could have been solved had their LOTO procedure included this provision.

The business in question would probably go tits up in a year (being kind and generous doesn't help much in capitalism), but it would at least feel like a good year. And, even if I couldn't fix the whole country, I could give 20-30 people job stability for a year and that always makes me feel good.

  • god, praising people's abilities and experience to the sky and then offering the most lousy pay.... yeah, had that. Got my master's degree with experience in various fields and with various equipment types and manufacturers. Now, despite all that hands on experience I'm just freshly coming from uni thus I can't sak for extraordinary pays but anything between 30k and 34k per year would be more than fine by me. So I got an interview within a week i sent my application (that's quite rare). During the interview they offered me a try-out week and were genuinely impressed with my skills and experience. (Before we progress, the peeps were totally cool. seriously, we were getting along great, so really not throwing anything towards them!) but then the salary came up. They asked me what I'd be wishing for and as I noted in my application I said anything between 30k and 34k. They looked at my file and said "yeah... well, it's gonna be more like 24k". I would be working in a very small village about an hour and a half away (doesn't matter whether by train or car) so I asked them whether they would cover commute (I don't have a car, they'd literally just need to pay for a year-ticket for our local train op which is wayyyyy less than a car commute) and their answer was a hard no. Also, in this village I would've been "stationed" there was absolutely nothing to get lunch. I don't know how many people live there but it's about 1km in diameter on its longest axis and most of the houses a single family homes. So, obviously: No paid-for lunch. They wouldn't cover any benefits. nothing. To be honest I was suprised they'd actually give me equipment to work with instead of me working with my own private stuff. now, 24k, may sound a lot but remember you need to subtract about half for tax and health insurance leaving me at slightly over 1k a month. subtract rent, commuting, and other fix costs this would leave me at ~200bucks to live (food, drink, freetime etc) All this for 8hrs+unpaid overtime + 3 hour daily commute (trains run hourly, both direction with a 30 minute gap between them.) this would result me in leaving the house probably at 6am and returning home at 8pm. I left, called my dad, wished him a happy birthday, told him what they offered me, we both had a masive laugh. I got home, told friends who were just in shock. Petty ass I am I checked their job offerings about 9 months later: position still listed with the added note: urgent.

  • The last story- some bosses really think they can pay pennies and it's ok. They end up costing the company lots of money in turn overs and issues just because they refuse to pay a decent wage. Of course, the other side of that is if they pay the new guy more then everybody else also wants even more. But that's what management is for. People need to be paid what they are worth. Why would you even want employees that are basically worthless?

  • That production plant math about _"lost money"_ seems to come from the book: The Goal from Eliyahu M. Goldratt. Basically, it bases itself on the notion that the sector or machine where the product to be sold spends the most time being transformed or worked on constitutes a production bottleneck and that the production cost incurred by that bottleneck not performing its job is not the hourly rate at which it is operated but the entire production facility's cost for the same hour. It is an interesting read, if only to deal away with some commonly wrong assumptions on production and cost management.

He had no LOTO training, and didn’t disable the machine. I bet you see where this is going...
