Remember - Days May Seem Long, But Years Go By Fast...

I woke up yesterday after working the first part of the weekend outside on my lawn with those typical aches and pains that I feel a little more each year.

I still remember those days when we used to climb up on a small building in my friend’s back yard and jump off the roof (about 8’), roll on the ground and then do it again because it was fun. Now stepping off to a drop of 3’ jars the heck out of my body.

The sad part is that although I know my age, sometimes I still try to do what I used to be able to do because my mind thinks one thing, but my body, well, let’s just say it doesn’t agree.

So where am I going with this?Bear with me for a moment and I think you’ll understand.

I can honestly say that in about 45 years of my working life I’ve never experienced a serious injury that put me out of commission for any real time or required any time in the hospital – yet my body still is not what it used to be.

Others I know have not been so lucky and they don’t have the same ability to go out and work in the yard like I do and then the next day feel those little aches and pains.

My point is the choices you make today when it comes to workplace safety can have a dramatic effect on how you are able to live your life as you get older.

For any of you who are reading and have experienced a serious accident at a younger age, I’m sure you understand what I’m talking about.

But for you younger employees it’s sometimes difficult to understand how it will affect you as you get older because we just don’t think that way.

So, here’s what I’d like you all to do sometime this week.

If you are older and and experienced a serious workplace accident that has changed how you will live out the rest of your life or if you know of someone that has, please share that story with your fellow employees so they make better workplace safety choices today and in the days to come.

And for those of you listening to these stories, really listen and heed the warnings. It might just be one of the smartest thing you’ve ever done!

Remember, days may seem long, but years go by fast and those little aches and pains that I was talking about earlier will be here before you know it.Don’t make them any worse than they need to be.
