Structural concerns

Thanks for the advice.

I was inspecting the plumbing work and noticed that to get the angle on the drain pipe from the shower the guy had cut a 3" notch into the 7" beam that runs perpendicular to the floor boards and would be right underneath the person that is showering! The two beams to either side of this one are 8" and 14" away. I'm definitely no engineer but this doesn't seem good, and putting a mortar bed on top of that and then a 200lb showerer makes me nervous!

Am I right to be concerned or is this OK?
