The word safety
refers to your freedom from danger, injury and damage, and to your personal
security. It's what America was
founded on. It's what everyone
wants, but doesn't always get. It
requires a lot of effort to have and to keep.
In recent years
there has been a concentrated effort in our country to reduce accidents and save
lives -- in the process, the word safety has been used so often that many of you
may think of it as a "Preaching Word", or a word that forces you to
alter your ways or change bad habits.
Instead, when you
hear the word safety, think of it as a word that applies to the way you do
everything in life. If you have bad
safety habits, you're just not doing things as well as you should!
If your driving safely, you're simply operating your vehicle as intended
and obeying the laws, no more, no less. If
your working with a power tool that requires eye protection, don't fight it.
Safety glasses are simply a necessary accessory to the proper use of that
tool. If you're at home, take the
time to use a ladder instead of standing on a chair that was made to sit on.
Today is the best
time to think about your bad safety habits and then correct them.
Improving your bad safety habits will require concentration and effort,
but the results will help make you a more responsible and desirable employee,
improved driver, and a good example to those around you -- and your bonus for
this effort is - a greatly reduced chance of becoming an accident statistic this
Never ride on a crane hook, headache ball or on any suspended load.
