Safety first!

May 6, 2022

Staying safe, being safe, working safely—safety has always been something that everyone needs to be aware of and do. But do you know all there is to know about safety? 

Alistair Schuback from Aframes Safety has created a vlog to talk about the why of safety. Check out his vlog below.

We’ve broken his vlog down for you. Let’s get into it!

What are people’s feelings about safety?

There are lots of different attitudes and cultural perspectives when it comes to safety. People tend to be frustrated by safety rules because of how they can limit what they can do, so they often are against it.

What are some of the reasons people work?

Well, the simplest answer is money. People need money to live their lives and pay for housing, food, fuel, their children, their holidays, etc. 

Businesses also need employees so they can make money and continue to run. 

The why of safety

Why have safety? Why be safe?

Well, in business terms, you have assets. Assets are useful or valuable things or people. And the number one financial asset you can have is yourself.

Ideally, you want to protect your most valuable asset, and that means staying safe and looking after yourself in your workplace. If you’re not safe in the workplace, you could get hurt or even hurt others, which can be painful or inconvenient.

If you do get hurt, it could lead to other unwanted consequences beyond getting hurt. There’s the possibility you may lose your job; depending on how severe your injury is, you may not be able to do your job anymore.

Losing your job means you lose what is most important to you: your money. Losing your money means you may struggle financially and won’t be able to pay for your living expenses. Essentially, a lack of safety could lead to a domino effect, where one thing sets off a chain reaction. 

How do you avoid this? It’s easy—be safe!
