What is your safety pledge?

IFE is a mindset. Safety is more singular and looks at you and your actions, where IFE looks at the environment you live in and your sphere of influence. It means making sure your actions and surrounds are kept safe for you and all those around you. At the same time, if everyone is living and acting in this way, it creates an overlap that assures everyone is watching out for each other.

How has IFE impacted my life?

I have always considered myself a safety-minded person. IFE made me look more at the environment in which I live, for it is not just safety at work. Safety extends to the home and how we act every day. One of the strongest messages I got from IFE is to look at the impact of my actions and how they can affect others, both in the short term and the long term. The Remember Charlie video was probably one of the most compelling messages in my IFE journey.
