What is your safety pledge?

Safety means taking responsibility for my safety and those around me. Safety means being empowered and courageous enough to say ‘stop’ if it isn't right. If something feels unsafe, it is.

How has IFE impacted my life?

In my personal life before IFE, I never wore the gear: eye protection, bike helmets, ear protection, gloves. Now and through the past 15 years, I cannot imagine running the chain saw without hand, eye and ear protection. I cannot imagine skiing or riding my bike without a helmet. I cannot imagine shooting without eye and ear protection. Yet, before IFE I did it all the time. Now is the time to make what is an instinct for me become an instinct for others.
