Yes it’s a corny story, but how many times do we go ahead with a task, taking an obvious risk, because the preliminary work is not completed, and perhaps put ourselves or others at risk when we do so? The following photo is a case in point.
Before you start a task, take a moment to list the others who may be affected by your work. Is someone else being put at risk, if you were to go out-of-sequence or skip a step in the process?
Following the proper work flow sequence is a major component of several of Evergreen Safety Council’s series of courses comprising our Safety & Health Specialist certification. If you have an interest in supporting safe work practices for your company, and want to have a better understanding of the spectrum of safety concepts of which you should be aware, contact us or check our the Safety & Health Specialist option on our website.
