Q: It is obvious that the company did not fit reliable safety equipment to the machine before it exploded. Had safety equipment which meets government mandated standards been fitted, the disaster would not have happened.

A: The fact that the safety equipment failed is not the company's fault. The government mandated safety standards did not prevent the explosion. If we didn't have these safety standards, things would be safer.

Sound stupid? Compare this to:

Q: It is obvious that companies did not follow financial regulations and this caused the market crash. Had these companies followed regulations this financial collapse would not have occurred.

A: The fact that regulations did not work is not the fault of the financial company. These regulations did not stop the financial crash from occurring. If we didn't have all these regulations, there would never have been a financial crash.
