Re: Nestlé best employer in Switzerland: survey

Nestlé - nanny for its employees but doesn't really care about the wildlife killed in Indonesia for its palm oil!

This is standard safety protocol. The risk of falling down the stairs is drastically reduced when holding the railing. Costs involved with lost man-hours due to injury are in-turn reduced.
Not hiring stupid people should drastically reduce accidents as well. Seriously, I would never work for a company that treats me like a little kid.

Ideally yes, unfortunately a good majority of the people in the world are stupid. One must only look at the sheer number of people in emergency wards with sprained ankles or breaks from falling. Most cases, if working, is a case where money is being spent and reduced work-productivity is being received.

I wouldn't call it treating works as children as much as educating them for safe practices and accident prevention and reduction. In a factory setting, one can never be sure of what might accidentally be on the surface of the stairs (or ones shoes). Even with the mandatory use of steel-toed/slip resistance footware even people on the far opposite of 'stupid' miss a stair in the odd occasion.

It's not a big deal once you being. I now hold rails instinctively whenever I'm traveling in the vertical direction. It has been beneficial on numerous occasions, namely in Zurich HB, when the stairs or escalator is a bit wet, it can be extremely slippery.

Looks like the Greenpeace Kit Kat campaign worked and Nestlé have committed to stop using products that come from rainforest destruction.
