Safety At Work Makes Sense

"Few of the accidents which take place in buildings result from work operations. Most of them occur as a result of other activities in the building and are mainly due to disregard for known safety rules. (Human error is still the weakest link in the chain of accident prevention.) People are inclined to underestimate the importance of safety when moving from one part of a building to another. This everyday function is regarded as such an ordinary, natural, harmless thing that we seem to mentally "turn our backs" on safety precautions." 

Good Reading Rack Service, 1956


  1. Very well said. People do have this tendency to disregard safety measures, especially if they’ve gained enough experience in the field, missing the point that it’s a habit of carelessness. This is a big challenge for the employers, actually. They’d have to double the effort to enforce workplace safety.

  2. Nothing is more important than personal safety! Ignoring safety measures by both by the company and the workers often results in accidents! Both parties should work together for the safety of all.

  3. Safety at work is a must, to prevent or lessen an accident from happening. Employees should be given the benefit of a workers compensation or work accident claim for compensation if something happens to them in the workplace.
