Every day, we are faced with choices: Decisions, from the mundane to the major, that set the stage for safety. While some of those choices may be second nature, like buckling seat belts, double-checking harnesses or wearing the right gloves on the job, others require practice before becoming habit. We must empower ourselves and each other to choose safety, time and time again – when we head to work at the beginning of the day, while we’re on-site and until we arrive back home, safe again.
We commit ourselves to safety because it’s not just our personal safety that we hold in our hands: The choices we make – the ones we recognize and those we don’t – impact our co-workers, our community and also our family and friends. This responsibility is what inspires us to always do things the right way, the safe way. We are committed to recognizing the opportunities and challenges we face, to speak up when we see an unsafe practice and to always make safe choices.
This year, we call on every worker across every position in every company across our industry to join us on this mission. Our choices have the power to ripple across the communities, cities and countries in which we live, work and play. Together, we can and we will create a safer, stronger industry – for ourselves, our colleagues, our families and our friends. That is…
The power of safe choices.
