Do you realize how important your safety is to you and to your family? Are you “on the alert” every minute of the day to the dangers of using unsafe procedures? Many safe procedures have been designed to protect you on the job. These safe procedures are vital to you and the company, for you are up against a tough enemy who has an arsenal of missiles to launch against one of your most vulnerable targets . . . your hands.
SAFE PROCEDURES PROTECT HANDS against injury’s missiles, such as sharp edges . . . improperly conditioned hand tools, improperly handled material, Line of Fire and other pinch points. Be on guard every minute of the day. Failure to observe just one safe procedure . . . just one time . . . can cause injury to those vulnerable “tools” . . . YOUR HANDS.
Keeping an eye out for your co-workers safety can help you too . . . a lot, sometimes. We all make mistakes. We slip up once in a while. After all, we’re only human. But if each of us is keeping our coworkers safety in mind, and they are doing the same for us, they’re likely to catch our slips or at least the serious ones. You help them, they help you. Remember that one hand washes itself clean but rather One hand washes the other. Believe me, it pays.
Are you even fixed for safety, if so how are you fixed for safety? Have you enough left to last until the next hazard comes along? Be sure before you answer. Buying safety is pretty much the same process as buying anything in the store. Most employees buy it. Some buy more than others. Big buyers, naturally, are less likely to be injured on the job. They are also less likely to injure someone else. The question isn’t always how much safety an employee WANTS, but rather, how much safety do they buy.
