Sam is a graduate engineer who works in a UK-owned company that manufactures electronic products in Puerto Rica. The company’s management asks the technical team to increase the production line capacity because of an increase in product demand. After completing a capacity analysis, Sam recommends adding a UV curing oven (for polyimide film curing) to the production line. Sam’s boss, the engineering manager, accepts this recommendation and orders the oven. As part of the technical specification, the oven will be exhausted to effectively remove the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) given off during the curing, ensuring a safe environment. One month later, the new oven is in place and ready for production. The engineering manager asks Sam to begin using the oven immediately as the company wishes to increase production as quickly as possible. But when Sam asks whether the required air quality permits have been granted, the engineering manager informs Sam that it will be at least two weeks before the authorisation permits will come from the relevant external authority, the Environmental Quality Board (the EQB). Rather than wait two more weeks the engineering manager suggests starting the ovens now. The permits would arrive soon; meanwhile, nobody would know that the ovens were temporarily operating without them.
