Drivers killed by corporate language

No technical failures but corporate language used by General Motors employees killed 13 drivers involved in fatal crashes. Internal communication, the fatal fault block airbag deployment has been translated into the language of the company's wood. This jargon distorted message. So the chiefs and other employees who read responsibly internal messages sent by their colleagues understand that cars have a problem, but simply did not realize how serious are these problems.

Although discovered in time to block the onset of the defect airbags, U.S. auto giant General Motors employees have said bluntly. So people company decision makers understand that it's not a serious problem which eventually proved fatal for many drivers.

Neither had no way to understand the conditions under which the airbag fault was expressed as follows in internal reports: "Machines do not fulfill the function according to the project." Corporatisă expression is ambiguous, borderline logic.

Just as the limit of logic is that safety issues of GM cars appeared in internal reports as matters of convenience.

In addition to the failure to prevent the activation of airbags, some General Motors cars and the engine had problems, brakes and steering. None of these problems was expressed by the subject and predicate in internal reports, shows a survey near completion desfăşutară U.S. authorities.

Because the problems were not clearly stated in internal communication, the company did not perform recall service dangerous machinery.

Instead drivers were urged in 2006 through car dealers, not to hang heavy brelolcuri key in the ignition. For contact was the one who gave over head electrical system of the car and the engine block.

After several fatal accidents after which it became clear that the problems causing contact and locking airbag urlor, those of General Motors were accused of the American public have delayed repairs to avoid a shot image.

But U.S. authorities investigation shows that in fact there was no domestic conspiracy but simply a faulty electrical communication between company divisions.

Containing added incompetence or carelessness of employees, although they saw that cars were still defective road did nothing to convince management to order their recall service.

Last week, 15 employees of General Motors were fired because of this. But the company still has to work on its internal culture if you want to repeat past mistakes.

At least they do recall the cars. Many years ago Ford had issues with cars exploding when rear ended. They calculated on cost of recalling the vehicle, and decided it would be cheaper letting people die, and just pay any lawsuits.

Tragic that a lot of people have to die, before something is done to resolve it.

To quote Fight Club:

Narrator: A new car built by my company leaves somewhere traveling at 60 mph. The rear differential locks up. The car crashes and burns with everyone trapped inside. Now, should we initiate a recall? Take the number of vehicles in the field, A, multiply by the probable rate of failure, B, multiply by the average out-of-court settlement, C. A times B times C equals X. If X is less than the cost of a recall, we don't do one.

Woman on plane: Are there a lot of these kinds of accidents?

Narrator: You wouldn't believe.

Woman on plane: Which car company do you work for?

Narrator: A major one.
