Today we are in a rush to do many things that we forget to do basic things like stay safe. We are taught how to be safe from the time we are small. We learn it at home from our parents and family members and also at school from our teachers. We live a fast paced and technologically advanced life now that we forget to do things as simple as looking both sides before crossing the road. We should practice safety at home, school, in our work place and on the road as it is essential to our well-being.
Safety at work
How you act and how you carry you at your work place is important. This can be the difference that gets you a promotion. You should always care about the people around you and the equipment that you are dealing with. It is good to have fun in an office and be relaxed but do not run around the office as this can put equipment and people in harm. Be careful when passing things such as scissors. This may seem elementary but the most basic things can be the hardest.
Management should also spend on things such as tile roof restoration as this can reduce the chance of water leaking and causing electrical issues that can cause harm to an employee. If an employee is injured this will increase costs because there will be lost hours of work, the management has to pay worker compensation or maybe even be at risk of getting sued.
But when fixing an office building and doing things such as gutter repair workers should take care of themselves by following guidelines and safety procedures. They can do simple things such as wearing helmets.
Technology has caused safety problems for many people. People do not follow basic safety because they are caught up on their phones or laptops. People text, take pictures and use headphones while crossing the roads. They forgot to look both sides and cause harm not only to themselves but people around them. It is a fact that more people have died while taking selfies by getting run over by trains or falling out of buildings than by been eaten by sharks.
People also should not drink and drive. Nowadays people are at more risk because there are faster cars and the even sober people on the road pay less attention to safety. People now don’t only drink and drive but they also text and post on social media while driving which maybe just as bad as drinking and driving.
