just saw a local chem plant do a 180 on maintenance when the maintenance manager position changed hands, they all get pressure from corporate but some are pushovers and will be the scapegoat when something bad happens.
When I was working on a facility that had life safety issues going ignored often they would be caught on random state inspections.

In my humble opinion two things totally waste money as personally seen by me on over 10 large industrial jobs:
1) Rework arising from bad workmanship and lack of pride. The workers who generated the rework should be the ones to rework it.
2) Engineered drawing discrepencies. Engineers cut and paste drawings and send them to site where nobody has the time to study the drawings to find something like 2C#10 teck to operate a 3-phase pump and the distance is about 700M from the E-House. And there are 6 feeds that have to be replaced.
Biggest waste of of money today is the "safety" industry that really is nothing but liability shifting. They have created procedures for doing every simple task, that if followed to the letter makes it impossible to do your job in a timely, efficient manner.
