What is your safety pledge?

Safety to me is making sure we keep people from getting injured every day, including ourselves. Safety should be part of our lives as much as planning and executing our work. It is an integral part of any successful job. Safety shouldn't just be a work thing - it has to carry over into our private lives and be passed on to our family and friends.

How has IFE impacted my life?

IFE really embodies what safety should be. Safety and an Injury-Free Environment is a personal commitment and it is up to each individual to make it work.
