COURTESY 

Courtesy and Safety are partners.  Lack of courtesy has caused an endless number of accidents.  For example, most of us do things when we are behind the wheel of a car that we would not do anywhere else, such as cutting in and angering other drivers.  Our lack of courtesy upsets the other drivers and makes them less able to drive safely. 

Not being courteous can be DANGEROUS.  Discourteous people in construction does things that threaten the comfort and safety of others.  Discourteous people leave a door open that should be kept shut.  Discourteous people do not put tools where they are supposed to be stored.  Discourteous people think only of themselves and threaten the safety of others by their selfishness.
