Techniques in Training: A Broken Heart is a Powerful Reminder—Building Your Safety Culture With Love

- February 13, 2020 by Guest Bloggers (View all posts by Guest)

Valentine’s Day is a great time to reflect on our personal relationships. It’s also the ideal time to remind your employees that they have many people in their lives that love them and would miss them if they were gone.  The decision to work safely belongs to your employees.  Valentine’s Day is a great reason to ask your employees to reflect on  their safety decisions.

To celebrate Valentine’s Day, take a break from the safety lecture and give your employees a moment to think about who they love.  Have them reflect on some of the below scenarios:

  • Your significant other has a broken leg and cannot make it up the stairs to bed – but you can’t lift her up and support her.  Why didn’t pay you attention to safe lifting practices before you ruptured your discs?
  • You won tickets to the big game, a dream come true to any football fan but you didn’t take the time to put on your safety glasses and you will never see your team win big. 
  • Your daughter’s wedding day – she is so happy; filled with joy!  But you will never hear her say “I do,” because you failed to wear hearing protection.

Safety is about so much more than not having an accident – it is about having a wonderful and fulfilling life.  It’s about being able to do the things you love, with the people you love, all the days of your life.

Ten little fingers, ten little toes – two eyes, two ears, and a funny looking nose.  They are all priceless.
