Every new challenge brings strength and the power to grow as an individual. However, traveling headfirst into the unknown with blinders on is unwise. A thorough examination of what lies ahead must come first. Assessing the risks to health and safety always takes priority over the final conquest. Each individual is responsible for examining the path that lies ahead, assessing the possible risks, and planning the way through without injury to self or those who follow. An unsafe workplace is unacceptable. An injury to one person is too many when avoiding that injury meant thinking ahead and realizing the disaster that obstacle could cause.
The entire workforce is responsible for keeping their environment safe regardless of their job description or assigned tasks. Any new idea, any change in process has to pass the guidelines of safety or be discarded before anyone is harmed. A disregard for personal and public safety is the catalyst for injury or death within a community, school, or industrial environment. Stressing the importance of safety in any area where people gather demonstrates responsibility and character. How can industry afford the time it takes for a thorough examination of each new design or idea? The lessons learned by one individual will drive home the importance of allowing the time to make safety a part of everyone’s master plan. Nick Scott is the man at the head of the trail, and he will motivate those who follow to take the lead in forging safe passage through life.
