What is your safety pledge?

What safety means to me at this point is mainly helping others so that they first understand what it means to be safe, feel empowered to stay safe, and then reminding them every day to work safe. Some people really don’t understand or care about the importance of safety - they just want to get through the day. These are the ones I hope to help.

How has IFE impacted my life?

The impact of IFE in my life is realizing how far we have come and how much farther we have to go to have an Injury-Free Environment, how much effort and work it takes, and that we can never say we have made it because that is when something could happen. We need to stay focused on being safe at all times.
