When Will It End? Let's Hope - NEVER!

It seems that our whole lives we are told by others to do something a certain way or not because someone is going to get hurt.

First it starts at home with “Don’t touch the stove you’ll burn yourself” – then it goes on:

  • “Stop standing on that chair - it’s going to tip over”
  • “Hold on to the handrail or you’ll fall down the stairs”
  • “Watch where you are going or you’re going to trip”
  • “Don’t text and drive - you’ll cause an accident”
  • And it goes on and on and on

Then we go off to work and it’s the same thing over and over again:

  • “Put on your fall protection so you don’t fall off the roof”
  • “Don’t use that grinder without eye protection - you’ll put your eye out”
  • “Wipe the water off the floor before someone slips on it”
  • “Don’t step on This is Not a Step on the step ladder - you will fall”

What is it with everyone telling us what we can and can’t do because someone might get hurt?

When will it end?

Let’s hope – NEVER!

Because even though we are told day in and day out not to do things that create a hazardous situation, we just keep on doing it until finally - Someone Gets Hurt.

Just take a look around and you’ll see that people still fall down the stairs because they don’t hold onto the handrail, you still see workers up on roofs without proper fall protection, and the next time you stop at a traffic light, look around and see how many people are texting and driving.

Notice that I said stopped at a traffic light, not driving down the road – wouldn’t want you to get distracted and get into an accident.

You see, even I can’t stop telling you what you need to do to keep everyone safe.

It seems we will always need to be reminded how to keep ourselves and others around safe.

If you see someone doing something in an unsafe way today, do your part and remind them to live and work safely.
