Your Safety Attitude
A good attitude toward safety is key to preventing unnecessary incidents and injuries. Your attitude affects your safety and the safety of everyone around you, whether you are at work or at home.
WHAT IS A GOOD SAFETY ATTITUDE?
Focus: A good attitude means you avoid distractions and try to remain focused on the task at hand.
Time: A good attitude means taking time to do the job right because you know that saving a few minutes by using a shortcut is not worth the risk of a painful injury.
Discipline: A good attitude means you are disciplined to always do what’s right, even if others encourage you to take shortcuts or fool around.
Responsibility: A good attitude means you will take responsibility, even when a certain task “isn’t my job.” For example, wouldn’t you appreciate it if someone else cleaned up a spill on the floor before you found it the hard way?
Risk: There is no way to avoid all risk. Just b getting in your car, you’re taking some risk. A good attitude means avoiding taking risks whenever you can. We can think of excuses for not always acting with safety in mind, but in the end, it makes a lot more sense to have a good safety attitude.
Safety is a way of life.
