Each day we take on tasks that are dangerous and could alter our way of life in a blink of an eye. The companies we work for take the time to provide us with the education, tools and leadership to perform our work in the best possible manner, but also in the safest. We all have an end goal of returning to our families safe.
At your next family meal, talk with your family about the things you do at work each day to keep yourself safe so you can be with them. Explain the pre-planning that goes into your daily tasks, show them the safety equipment you inspect and use each and every day. You might even have them try on your hard hat / safety glasses, fall harness, and reflective clothing. They will understand that being safe for them, takes a little extra effort.
Here is a list of topics you can take 5 minutes to talk about while at home:
•hazardous household chemicals
•household electrical safety
•insect awareness and precautions
•medical reserve corps
•severe weather awareness
•working safely in the yard
