Smart people learn from THEIR mistakes Smarter people learn from others mistakes. 

Yes Sir I agree totally, and that just dont apply to the safety industry, Ive been telling my teenagers that for ever. LOL

"Machines Don't Bleed, People Do...When in doubt, Lock it out"

Don't ba a safety coward ! Stand up for safety.

Romance with Safety, it provides enjoyment.

Lead by Example.

 

During my 20 years as an OSHA Compliance Officer, I cited quite a few companies where the owner/president/supervisor was not wearing PPE.  How did they expect to enforce the wearing of proper PPE when they were not wearing it?

I have used that myself a many of times, I can not expect someone do do something I'm not willing to do myself.

I totally agree. But as employees it is also our responsibility to speak up.

As an hourly employee I have had to tell Plant Managers that they could not walk onto the production floor because they had no PPE. At first the stares are the one's of you are so fired....

Then they are like good job.

They are also human just like the rest of us.

Don't lend your and other safety in other hands, lend it to safest, your own hands!

Safety is not practiced it is a way to live life!

It's funny to acually see this written, I have a 19 year old son who has just entered the construction industry,  and the funny part of that is he happened to be on the site I was the safety. He said to me one day, about 2 months into it, you take your job way to seriuos, I dont see why we can't do it this way or that way ,ect. For me safety is a way of life not just a job i have from 7am to 330pm. All I could tell him is "I hope you don't have to find out why I take my job serious by seeing or having an accident.

The importance of onboarding

The importance of onboarding can be understood from the fact that it starts with the induction of the new hires and acclimatizes them with all the important aspects of the new organization, such as the culture, environment, people, and the business. In the light of the important elements that go into onboarding; it is a fallacy and a misconception to assume that it is yet another ritual that HR has to perform with new employees, hand them a cup of coffee and carry out the paperwork.Onboarding…See More
