TAKE 10 SECONDS Look Out for Dangers!


GPS challenge of the week… TAKE 10 SECONDS TO LOOKOUT FOR DANGERS! It is easy to become complacent in familiar surroundings.

Develop a safe habit of TAKING 10 SECONDS to look for existing or new potential hazards: Take 10 Seconds to check your workstation for exposed electrical cords or other tripping hazards: shut file cabinet drawers when not in use: store tools, equipment and materials properly to prevent falling or sharp edges: stack materials to prevent sliding, falling or collapsing, wear personal protective equipment: avoid distracted walking: never remove machine guarding: pay attention in safety training.

The more often you TAKE 10 SECONDS to identify existing or potential hazards the better equipped you are to create a safer work environment.
