Mitch – I am probably not the guy to contact on this as I dont have lot time for folks who are too inept to ride a bike or dress correctly.
 
We had lot young nerd process engineers (some include me among those- just took out young) and they all managed ride bikes. Not sure I would want ANYONE in refinery around process equipment who wasnt capable handling simple equipment. <Anyone can have accidents due to older type this article mentions replacing, however – which was safety elemnet of articles point>.
 
I also do not have lot time for anyone in refinery without head-toe nomex, hard-hat & gloves. This was always normal attire for almost every refinery I have been in – even labs & front office types that journey into plant. Anyone getting hurt due inappropiate dress should be fired for that reason alone.
 
Dont mean to be hard-butt I think its that simple & lot operational folks rode me hard anytime I didnt the right thing (coming from labs & metal foundry – was quick study) and I would be extremely supprised if they arent still extracting that simple pleasure from newbie’s today.
