Is Safety a Priority or a Value?
by Josh Welp, FNF Safety Manager
We’ve all heard the saying, Safety is a Priority! It may be the most common safety slogan heard today. But when we stop to think about it, safety should not be one of our priorities. Wait, did a safety professional just tell me that safety is not a priority? I know what you are thinking and I can hear you saying it at this very moment: “But, that’s what I’ve been told for years and I always make safety a priority!” I understand. But let me take a moment to explain why safety should not be a priority, and instead, should be a value . Not only at work, but in your everyday lives. . Click here to read more .
