Everything comes with a cost! It is what it is.

So, the right action depends on the details.

I got called back to a jobsite to take a lock off during a shutdown at a power plant here a couple of years ago. Their policy is to never cut off locks, if they do have to, the plant manager hears about it.

This is in accordance to Canadian law
At any industrial site I have worked on in the past 15 years, that would be grounds for immediate termination. Legally, unless there was property damage or personal injury, I don't know what would be done. That chit kills people.

I worked as a contractor for a large American manufactorer. We had an excellent electrician repairing a lighting circuit and left the plant with his lock on a area breaker.

I liked the guy, walked the area, found nothing dangerous and recommended we cut his lock. No luck and the super was going to send the night crew home, if they had no light.

I learned only the plant manager could authorize cutting a lock. And, nobody would talk to him.

Well the electrician was located 50 miles away, drove back, removed his lock and was fired.

Firing is harsh for one mistake but rules are rules.
