Man, the Dominant Species A Safety Montage <ul><li>Thanks to Dave Thompson </li></ul><ul><li>AMCS(AW) retired </li></ul>
Once upon a time, man had the skyscraper.
As society grew in sophistication, one of the benefits of technology was miniaturization.
This improvement easily lent itself to mankind’s entrepreneurial spirit.
The diversification of markets introduced new variations.
These variations took many forms.
We were proud of our achievements…
…  of our innovations.
Our ingenuity allowed us to reach new heights.
But regardless of our technological advancements…
…  the world is still a dangerous place.
As if behind every tree…
… there’s something coming up behind us…
… or waiting to fall on us…
…  or to jump out and bite us.
We don’t always see all the hazards…
… or the pitfalls…
… or the obstructions in our way…
… but there are many.
Some hazards are big…
… and some are small.
They can be found everywhere…
… in our backyards…
… in the office…
… when we’re traveling…
…  when we’re do-it-yourself-in.
Don’t take your safety for granted…
… even if you’ve done a job a thousand times before…
Accidents happen when we least expect them…
… when we push the envelope…
… when we exceed design limitations…
… act carelessly or recklessly…
… or improperly use safety equipment.
Or sometimes, in spite of our best efforts.
Clear and effective communication…
… is essential to achieving a positive safety culture.
Leaders must be positive role models...
… as well as communicate support.
Safety must be engineered into our day-to-day routines.
Following precautions is a must.
We can’t ignore…
… the signs.
Safety isn’t something to joke around about.
Don’t be nuts... be safe.
