Why do people take safety risks and shortcuts? Why are we okay with risking our lives to get a task done? Keep in mind, we all know that we need to get the job done because our livelihood depends on it. However, ask yourself: What happens to my loved ones, if I die or become permanently incapacitated?
It seems extreme but that is the possible result of safety short cuts, neglect for your health and willingness to accept unsafe working environments. Let’s analyse the ‘quick route’ to get a task done BEFORE actually doing it and we’d realise that 9/10 times we are placing ourselves in unsafe situations. Every procedure and direction for the accomplishment of a task was written in blood. Someone once tried it and either died or was injured. Think about this the next time you want to take a shortcut!
