For some, safety only becomes an important consideration when they are doing a dangerous job or task. They rationalize that safety procedures can be bypassed or ignored when the task is simple, small, routine and seemingly presents little risk of injury. Unfortunately, this type of thinking is why many routine, and apparently safe tasks or jobs, end up resulting in the most serious of accidents.
Safe work habits should not be limited to those projects or tasks that are the most difficult or dangerous. Safe work habits should be part of your everyday work routine. If safety is not incorporated into every job or task you do, it’s really only a matter of time before an accident occurs.
