1 Thought from the Team

The news of the Titan submersible’s implosion, and the corresponding reports of how CEO Stockton Rush disregarded safety regulations in favor of “innovation”, have all of us gripped. It’s evident that some dangerous cost-cutting measures were implemented in order to get the product to market as quickly as possible, which ended up costing innocent lives. A reminder to all of us that as much as we want to innovate, disrupt the industry, or become profitable, it should never be at the expense of safety.
