  • Bystander effect at it's finest.

    "If it's really that bad, someone else will help."

    You could either be passive aggressive and never help anyone unless they directly ask, or try taking the lack of caution about trying to limit liability issues by investigating possible injuries up with HR or whatever department handles workplace safety where you work.
