Every day we wake up, and choices begin. Hit the snooze alarm? Make some coffee? Do I have to shave today or can I put it off? Should I take the main road today to work, or go the side streets? Should I stop and get gas, or put it off until tomorrow?
And so it continues through the day. Every action is decisionable. We may not always feel that way, but it's true. Many choices are automatic, we don't even think about them. Unless I win the lottery this weekend, I'm pretty likely to go to bed Sunday night with the full intent to wake up and head off to work Monday morning.
Those choices, even the most automatic ones, shape so much of our life. If I choose to see work as a necessary evil, and a place to put in time, then that's what it will be. If I see work as a chance to grow and learn, then every day is training day.
Every day is safety day. There is never a reason to make the short cut choice, to even make the choice to proceed with a new task without weighing the alternatives. We choose thought, we choose managing the risk, we choose to put in the brain time to improve our likelihood of working without injury. That's the path that demonstrates that we don't just value safety, we value human life and integrity.

Do your actions demonstrate to your constituents that you are doing what you are required to do from a regulatory standpoint, or do you show them that you choose to help them work in the safest way possible?

Tim very good article. You should read my blog about Choices we make, I wrote this article for our quarterly newsletter. Just watching a young person going to school and related it to safety choices we make in our daily lives. Thanks again.

Let's design better safety posters!

Hello all,I'd like to get a conversation going about what makes "the ideal safety poster." There are really two main categories of safety posters, it seems to me: workplace, and family. Design principles would be different for those two categories.The workplace poster needs to be very detail-oriented and observant of consistent rules. Compassion is important too, but since the workplace is all adults who are expected to wisely apply self-care, that's usually secondary.For the family safety…See More
