What is your safety pledge?

For me safety is about preserving the health, well-being and quality of life of the people who surround me: family, friends and coworkers. It embodies education, inclusion, collaboration, good choices and placing importance on being proactive rather than reactive. Living injury-free is as important in our personal lives as it is in the workplace. A broken bone or torn muscle will not differentiate work and home life, all of the things you enjoy can be negatively impacted if you are unsafe.

How has IFE impacted my life?

IFE has shifted my impression of safety from that of strict compliance to a more creative outlook. IFE challenges us to look beyond what is acceptable to achieve zero injuries by turning over new stones and developing alternative approaches. The positive messages of inclusion and idea sharing have helped transform the culture from seeing safety as something you have to do, to something you want to do.
