Safety at the Movies
Safety is everywhere, even at the movies. I can't help myself sometimes and this weekend was no different. Going out for a family fun day at the movies to see Sully and the whole time I was thinking of potential worker safety implications.
btw, the movie was awesome! Here's the trailer...
I know, I know... turn off the safety for a few minutes and relax. But I can't.
That's the hazard of being in the safety industry. Yes, that's what I consider it.
Safety is everywhere. It is built into every aspect of our lives: at home, at work, ahem, in the movies.
The premise of the movie Sully has to do with an amazing water landing performed by an exceptional pilot. Here's what The Google has to say about the movie:
"On Jan. 15, 2009, Capt. Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger (Tom Hanks) tries to make an emergency landing in New York's Hudson River after US Airways Flight 1549 strikes a flock of geese. Miraculously, all of the 155 passengers and crew survive the harrowing ordeal, and Sullenberger becomes a national hero in the eyes of the public and the media. Despite the accolades, the famed pilot now faces an investigation that threatens to destroy his career and reputation."
You may be saying... Yes, okay, what does that have to do with me? What does that have to do with my folks here today?
Here's what: Safety is a life or death industry. And the safety of your workers, your team, at your company is also potentially life or death.
It is a thing that managers, business owners, and CEOs don't want to think about but Safety professionals get paid to think about it. We get paid to help companies avoid the worst case scenario. And I have had to investigate the worst case scenario, too many times.
We get paid to help companies win at safety. That is my goal. To help you win at your business by helping you to win at safety. For your team, winning at safety means no injuries, no "accidents", and ZERO fatalities. Every worker, every day, goes home the same way they came to work. WIN. WIN. WIN.
In the movie Captain Sully won. He did his job and got 155 souls back home safely. So I'm going to do my job and try to save some lives by providing your team the best darn safety information I can.
Sending people home safely is what I do and that is what the team at Weeklysafety.com is committed to doing for you and your team.
