Do you take chances at home, work, or play? Have you ever cut corners and done something at risk? Are you a gambler and willing to take chances?
Safety policies and procedures are not suggestions. It is mandatory to follow all safety procedures at all times – no exceptions! No one can protect you more than YOURSELF and you must follow the rules, regulations, policies, and procedures so that you are not exposed to a dangerous situation. Claiming ignorance is not an admissible defense. For Safety’s Sake, Do Something to prevent an incident or injury from occurring.
It is required that:
- Safe work practices are reaffirmed at every level, from pre-task planning, working throughout the day, and after work is completed.
- All tools (power tools, hand tools, electrical devices, welders, welding leads, extension cords, ladders, etc.) are to be inspected each day to ensure they are in proper working order. If they are suspect, take them out of service immediately and replace them.
- No employee will perform a task in which they are not trained. EVER.
- If normal work practices are modified or changed for any reason that could remotely put anyone in danger, speak up and inform company safety professionals immediately before performing a potential unsafe work activity. Each person is empowered to report directly to a safety professional at each site any potential unsafe work activity occurring around them by others.
