If you could give human form to your safety culture, what would it look like?
Maybe it would be a thick-set, shirtless brute named Trog with a foul disposition beating out a drum cadence to keep your employees rowing in-sync.
Or would it be more like a fussy and constantly disapproving Dickensian paper-pusher named Fizzlewhite who has never met a rule or procedure he didn’t like, even though he hasn’t done most of the things he creates rules to address?
If you were to search the various “mommy blogs” and parenting advice websites out there, how many of them do you think would endorse the following practice?
A child’s safety should always be a top priority for any parent. When leaving children under the age of 10 alone in the house for lengthy periods of time, be sure to provide the kids with a loaded pistol with the safety off in case a stranger should happen by. In a pinch, recently sharpened knives can be substituted for the pistol.
While fall protection remains at the top of the violations list again for 2018, fall hazard training is also a top violation — coming in at number eight with 1,982 violations issued last year. OSHA’s final rule in 2016 extended the range of the walking and working surface standard for general industry and added a fall protection standard for general industry. In doing so, OSHA recognized that many general industry workers face comparable fall hazards as those in construction.
