As you probably have guessed, this Bear is a big advocate of safety in the workplace. My company continues to win numerous safety awards. As part of our safety program we also promote (quite often) safety when away from the workplace.
Even though my company hasn't had an industrial (lost-time) injury since April of 2001 (well over one-million workplace labor hours) we have had a ton of folks who missed work because of home injuries.
One (1) guy was working on his back porch floor, wearing sandals, caught them on a floorboard and fell. He was off for awhile. Another guy was on a ladder, cleaning gutters, and fell. He was off for months with numerous broken bones.
This Bear tries to practice what he preaches. I try to be safe at home, especially if my work involves power saws, electricity, or ladders. So far.....so good.
What about you? How safe are you at home? Do you practice safe work practices at home? Do you wear a seat belt? Are you a safe driver? If doing something like wiring an electrical outlet do you double-check with a meter to make sure you have no power to your outlet?
