11. There's also a lawsuit factor there.

Here in these so-called "right to work" states, you are told of the hazards of your job at the onset. Once you are warned about them, it is extremely difficult for you to successfully sue if you are injured. They make it your fault for not following the rules, even if your employer has been threatening you with termination if you refuse to work under unsafe conditions. In free-bargaining states, employers have the onus of lawsuits hanging over their heads, and are usually extra-careful when it comes to following safety regulations. They don't want to lose their pants in a lawsuit.
