How far away is death? The best safety song

The Best Safety Song

Improve your Company’s Safety Culture (An embodiment of “The Best Safety Song”)

“The Best Safety Song” reminded me about how everyone can improve their safety at work and cut down on accidents, risks, and loss of revenue. Take a look at a recent Mark Paradies’ article, “2 Dead – Another Example of Non-Conservative Decision-Making at a Refinery.

Workers are often blamed for making non-conservative decisions to get the work done, but we tend to look the other way when senior leaders encourage or make non-conservative decisions. This is unfortunate because our leaders set the tone for decisions made throughout the organization. Your management’s philosophy can protect your people, the environment, and your company’s reputation.
