For most of us, safety is a career and we receive paychecks, so we all do this for our own reasons. When we think of the results of our work, however, we see that when we are successful, people do not get hurt, or worse. Measuring success in our line of work means measuring something that doesn’t happen. We can look at injury rates and see a decline, but we may never know of the ‘big one’ that was prevented.
So for all of you who made the 25,000 happen – thanks, and realize that out there, you have done something that although you may not know exactly when you helped someone stop a back strain, keep a finger or hand, or kept them alive – you will have done that with your work. Again – it is a job, and we receive paychecks, but it is good work.
