What sounds like a simple taunt from a bully was only to get your attention. But I guess it was a taunt nonetheless.
There are a couple of new NIOSH reports out this week. As I reviewed them, once again I got a little bit angry because quite frankly I am getting tired of reading the same stuff all of the time.
This is a horribly dangerous job and bad stuff will happen, but I can't help but think that some stuff we can fix.
Go take a look at these two new reports. read them through. Put them aside and then come back to them later and as you read them, identify conditions within your own department that are similar.
Use the list you made to work on things and try to prevent a LODD within your own department.
It's not enough to read and review, you have to do something about it. If you don't do it, who will?
The reports can be found here at the NIOSH site. If you have not already done so, make it a bookmark.
The next time somebody asks you "what are you going to do about it", smile and tell them what you have already done!
