COMMON SENSE AND ACCIDENT PREVENTION
The experts say at least 80% of industrial accidents are caused by unsafe acts on the part of employees–and not by unsafe conditions. Here are a few actions, paired with safety suggestions:
- Being in a Hurry – Don’t let the concern for completing a job quickly overshadow safety.
- Taking Chances – Daring behavior or blatant disregard for safe work practices can put the whole work team at risk.
- Being Preoccupied – If your mind is troubled or distracted, you’re at risk for an accident.
- Having A Negative Attitude – Being angry or in a bad mood can lead to severe accidents because anger nearly always rules over caution.
- Failing To Look For Hidden Hazards – Always be alert for changes in the jobsite environment. Hidden hazards include spilled liquids, out-of-place objects, unmarked floor openings, etc.
Awareness of your environment, self-preservation, and concern for your fellow workers are all factors in good common sense. All workers can prevent themselves from getting hurt.
