So What's Stopping Us?

They say “The older you get the wiser you become.”

And if you look up the definition of wise, the Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines it as “having or showing wisdom or knowledge usually from learning or experiencing many things; based on good reasoning or information; showing good sense or judgment.”

So why is it that when it comes to workplace safety we don’t use all that wisdom we’ve picked up over the years to help prevent accidents in the workplace-but instead continue to do it the same way?

Although you may not have been personally involved in a serious workplace accident, if you’ve been working awhile you’ve heard those stories about accidents in the workplace. Yet more often than not, many of you still come back with, ”I’ve done it this way for the past __ years, so why should I change now?”

Well, maybe it’s time to throw that saying out the window because with all that wisdom you’ve picked up over the years you realize there’s a safer way to get the job done.

Now for all of you who have only been in the workforce for a few years, don’t get the wrong idea that I’m only talking to those who have been around 30 or 40 years. I’m also talking to you.

There is no question that each of us becomes a little wiser every day on the job and it’s everyone’s job to use that knowledge we have gained through our experience to help prevent workplace accidents.If we don’t we will find that by doing it the same way someday it will hit us right between the eyes.

That’s right, we’ll find ourselves right in the middle of workplace accident.

We use our increased wisdom for everything else.We use it to get our work done in a more efficient manner, to cut costs and even to improve how we process things like paperwork.

So what’s stopping you?

Let’s put a little of that wisdom you’ve picked up over the years to work today, making a safer workplace for everyone.
