When starting out in a new job, we often have some concessions when it comes to finding our footing.

Therefore, we are often forgiven for most mistakes we might make in our first few weeks of the job, often being sent home with a warning.

However, not all jobs allow for the same leeway, even on the first day.

Generally speaking, these are the types of jobs where people are responsible for the safety of others, sometimes even in life or death situations.

As a result, there is literally no room for error, even with the tiniest mistake.

Everyone has made a mistake once in their life.

After all, as the saying goes, "to err is human".

Even so, certain professions simply do not allow for even one simple mistake.

Particularly if that mistake could end up costing someone their lives.
