From the legions of brooms in Fantasia to Mrs. Potts and Mater, the loveable tow truck, Disney cartoons have allowed inanimate objects to literally come to life. But, they’re not alive, they’re fictional characters. Their sensitive, brave and quirky personalities belong to the brilliant minds of animators, writers and voice talent.
There are many obstacles between a human and procedural compliance. The least common of these is willful unsafe operations. Not effectively managing all the threats associated with an object is not willful unsafe operation. It is a lack of understanding or perspective that can be addressed by additional training. Willful or not, how the object is used still rests solely with the user. Rarely, is the misuse of an aircraft intentional as in the case of 9/11 which is an entirely different discussion.
