By now we have all watched the news footage of US Air Flight 1549. As a frequent flyer and one that has been on board my fair share of plane rides that were not exactly perfect, I have a fond appreciation for that crew, many thanks to all of you for what you did to ensure the safety of every passenger.
The safety of every passenger on this flight did not just happen. A plane going down is probably one of the frightening experiences for any of us. The crew on this flight reacted in a manner that shows the importance of not just learning the safety procedures, but actually reacting to them as if you had to do that on every flight. That does not just happen. While some of our businesses are not in a position to have the lives of 150 plus people in their hands, many of us have at least one, even if it is just yourself. Safety training is taught at all levels. Meetings are held, videos are shown and employees are required to say they were at the meeting and saw the video. If that is where your safety training stops, shame on you!
Safety should be a habit for all of us. Safe behaviors need to be reinforced daily so that they become habits. When that happens, your employees will react like the crew of Flight 1549 did. They will immediately know what to do and how to do it. So, the next time you have a thought about a safety incentive or recognition program and your mind goes to “yeah, but I have no budget for that”, think again.
Safety incentive and recognition does pay, it is a worthy investment and the crew of Flight 1549 proved that yesterday.

INFRARED SPECTROSCOPY Is Crucial to Your Business. Learn Why!

Near-Infrared Spectroscopy, NIR or NIRS, is considered a superior method assay to traditional ones, which are destructive and also reduce the number of doses for sale. It overcomes these drawbacks by being both rapid and nondestructive, which helps it respond to the pressures in the pharma industry for generating more and more data, which leads to more assays that bring these inevitable downsides.In being responsive to the physical and chemical environment of…See More
