And That's When It Really Counts

When was the last time you thought about workplace safety?

Maybe a better question to ask would be – do you think about workplace safety at the beginning and throughout each workday?

Workplace safety is one of those things that most of us think about when we’re taking safety training, having a safety meeting, when there’s a near miss incident or when an accident takes place, but rarely when we’re working.

And that's when it really counts.

To prevent accidents in the workplace, safety is one of those things we must always consider in all that we do, all day, every day or we find ourselves shortcutting safety procedures.

And we all know what shortcutting safety procedures can lead to . . . you guessed it, accidents.

We’ve all done it.Some have hopped that extension ladder a little to the right just to save a little time or the hassle of getting down and moving the ladder over a little, so we can reach that last little spot.

Or we see something spilled on the floor and rather than taking a few minutes to clean it up, we think no one is going to slip on that.

Or maybe even you have used a chair, better yet a chair on wheels, to get something out of your reach rather than getting a ladder.

I could go on and on with a list of shortcuts we take because we don’t consider our safety in everything we do, but I’m guessing you’ve got my point.

So, remember when you start work today to think safety first in all that you do throughout your workday to ensure you and others working with you go home in the same physical condition you came to work.
