Have a Safe and Happy Holiday Season

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Hard to believe that the holiday season is already here again. Each year it seems like we
are trying to get it started a few days earlier. This year I even heard Christmas music in
one of the stores in early October. I think that may have been pushing it a bit.
But with Thanksgiving just a few days away, it is truly the beginning of the
season. Although this time of year is one where we all should be happy and enjoying family
and friends, for many of us it can become a very fast paced and stressful time of year. And
often this stress rolls over into our workplace.
We sometimes cut corners at work during the holidays so that we can get everything done,
especially if we are looking forward to some time off. As you may recall in last week's
Safety E-QuickTip, a life was lost because someone chose to short-cut a procedure so that
everyone could get on the road home a little earlier for the holiday.
Outside stress in the workplace has often played a major factor in workplace
accidents. Stress can take our minds away from what we are doing and how it should be
done and then before we know it . . . well you know what can happen.
So if you find this happening to you this season, I hope you will take a moment, relax, and
remember what this season is all about. And always keep in mind that the workplace can
be a very dangerous place, especially if your mind is not on the task at hand.
I'd like to take this time to wish for each and everyone of you to have a safe and happy
holiday season. I hope you will take the time to do the same with everyone you work with
this season. I believe it is important for all of us to know that those we work with are
thinking about us during this sometimes stressful time of year.
