just remember there's:
#1 safety, as in protection from harm, and
#2 safety as in protection from being sued.
90% of the time for the management [following up on advice from the legals/compliance], you know bottom line and so on, #2 matters more - ass covered. #1 is just a byproduct.

think about it, how does a sign (or picture for multi-language) saying "watch your step" actually enhance safety? sure, most people will see it and take care, so yes, the safety (#1) is improved (not 100%) but only as a byproduct that sign ensures safety #2 is 100% covered - you fall, too bad, no case.

yeah the safety LEDs do light up, sure not instant but it's there and meets req. up to the operator to ensure those LED's stay off before proceeding.

and that's also why there's some pretty stupid signs, indicators, sirens etc out there - what's a few dollars in parts/printing compared to the potential lawsuits from not having them.

warning: do not operate the microwave if the door is not fully closed.
- you'd have to bypass/have broken a couple or more safety switches to manage that feat, cold happen in an old unit, and so just in case, despite the "safey" switches, that warning saves potentially millions ... of dollars., and maybe (but far far less likely) some old lady's liver.
