Employers often say, "Our employees are our greatest asset!" But is that really true? How many of us would run into a burning home to save our cherished photos, computers or other "valuable" possessions. Yet, when we see an unsafe work condition or practice, we fail to implement any administrative or engineering control to insure that workers are not injured as a result of that unsafe condition or practice. We'll risk our lives for possessions, yet tell the world that employees are our greatest asset!?!
The proof is in the action! Make an effort today to create a safer work environment for one of your employees or a co-worker!
