Safety folks can get a bad rep for being the bearers of bad news...
It's true, and unfortunately it is often warranted because it is part of the job...
So, to the statistic in the subject line above, 4,821 workers died on the job in 2014.
Sobering. True. Fact.
If you don't believe me you can see for yourself by checking the link at the bottom of this page where the details can be found.
But why bring this up today? Why should I bear this bad news to you?
Because at Weeklysafety.com we aren't about keeping things status quo, and we aren't about ignoring the facts...
We aren't about avoiding the reality of the dangers involved in the hard work done by our construction professionals each and every day.
What we are about is saving lives, preventing injuries, and helping small businesses succeed...
We are about equipping owners and managers with effective tools to improve their safety performance to help them save dollars and reduce injuries...
What drives us and keeps us excited about construction and manufacturing and all of the other industries out there is the fact that we know we can help keep people safe on the job.
Keeping people safe on the job is critical to the success of any company.
We subscribe to this idea:
"Safety should be like breathing. It should be a pre-condition for organizational behavior." Paul O'Neill, former CEO of ALCOA
