Stop Thinking "It Will Never Happen to Me"

Have you ever thought about how much time you spend at work during a normal week?

Well, if you work a standard 40-hour week, it turns out to be 23.8%.

Now I know not everyone works a 40-hour week. Some do more, some do less. But no matter how you look at it – we spend a lot of our week working.

With us spending almost 25% of our week working, we need to do everything possible to protect ourselves from hazards in the workplace so we spend the balance of the week enjoying life – and getting a little sleep.

So, what steps can we take each workday to help make that happen?

We can:

  • Pay more attention to our surroundings and minimize distractions
  • Make sure we keep our workplace clean and free of slips and tripping hazards
  • Stop taking shortcuts that create hazards
  • Take the time necessary before we start work to ensure we have the right tools and safety equipment
  • Follow company policies and procedures regarding safety
  • Stop thinking “it will never happen to me”

Remind yourself that a safe workplace does not happen by accident – it takes a little effort on everyone’s part. Take a few minutes each day to remind yourself to follow these 6 steps and you will be doing your part to help ensure an accident-free workday
