Consider This a Warning

You are walking down an aisle to place something on a shelf and your feet slip out from under you, but you catch yourself before you fall.

You are up on an extension ladder and you realize you can’t reach as far to the right as you need to, so you hop the top of the ladder a little to the right and you feel the ladder start to slide, but it stops before going over.

You are driving to a job when you decide you need to text someone.When you look up you are just about to run into the back of another vehicle, but you stop just in time.

You are working on a pitched roof without fall protection when you start to slide down the roof, but you stop just before going over the side.

Consider this a warning.

When it comes to workplace safety, often we are provided plenty of warnings before disaster strikes.

Think about it.How many situations have you been involved or heard about in the past 12 months that were what we now refer to as near miss incidents?I’m sure you can name a few – if not more than you can count on both hands.

All these warnings, yet we still have workplace accidents.

Why is that?

Could be we look at these warnings and believe our luck will never run out, or maybe we just don’t realize how close we really were to a serious injury or even death.

Yes, I said death. There were 4,693 fatalities in private industry in 2016.How many of those individuals do you think experienced near miss situations prior to their final day on the job?

Don’t take these warnings for granted – they may save your life.

Let’s work together this week to eliminate the warnings and make workplace safety a reality.
