Good Morning Team!
Most of us probably view the beginning of a new year as a chance at a fresh start. We feel like that this is the time for making positive changes and most often this is done in the form of resolutions. I wish you the best of luck in following through with any that you do make. However, I know from personal experience that while making a resolution is easy enough, it’s the keeping of them that is often challenging.
The ones that have I have mostly succeeded at were the ones that I knew that I had to do for health or financial reasons. Things like eating better and saving a little more for that rainy day. Those were ones that I could see tangible evidence of improvement in, like maybe a couple of inches lost around the mid-section or a little more money in the bank at the end of every month. (Remember…., I said mostly successful. 😊) That then make them easier to stick to.
Since others, far more knowledgeable and articulate about what motivates one to make a positive change and then be successful at keeping it have written on the subject, I will refrain from only muddying the waters with my own opinions here, but I do hope that you will consider making a resolution to following the best workplace safety practices possible for the coming year a prominent one. There are tangible benefits galore for those that do and are successful at it.
First and foremost, will be to your own health and well-being. You are always the most important reason to think about and practice safety but that still is not the only one to consider. Those around you will also benefit from your thoughtfully carried out safety actions. From loved ones to co-workers, clients to customers, all will benefit from you working in the safest manner possible in the coming year. Really, what other motivation could you possibly need?
Just imagine the coming year accident and injury free, both at work and home, isn’t that a resolution about doing your part, worth making and keeping? I hope you see it that way for sure.
Have a safe and Happy New Year!
