Having a safe environment is one of your basic requirements for maintaining a positive mental attitude at work.
No matter what your job is, you can be a champion for safety and keep yourself motivated and encourage others to be focused on safety. Here are some things you can do to champion safety:
- Keep your personal focus on safety.
- Make it a point to follow prescribed safe work practices.
- Continue to learn more about safety in your industry and keep your skills honed.
- Get involved in the safety process by volunteering to conduct a safety meeting or sit on a safety committee.
Keeping safety on the minds of everyone in the organization during changing and challenging times is difficult. It requires resources and commitment from everyone in the company because a safe work culture is important: management needs it, the workforce wants it, and families demand it.
