Apart from your training issue of staff not using correct daemon start 
procedures, it sounds like you'd get more mileage from configuration management 
(ansible/chef/puppet/salt/etc.) for this issue. That way every configuration 
management application would return the daemon to its correct state, and could 
also update your monit configuration (including monit reload) besides.
