I'd argue we can scale the response to the problem. Workers being killed or maimed on the job doesn't really equate to workers being insulted (or spat upon - which I sort of doubt) by drunks. There's also the issue where the Oilers are in the entertainment business and rely on public consumption and interest. Shielding an iron worker's eye from a rogue piece of rebar is very different than shielding a celebrity from an extra little bit of attention while they are on duty.
