"Everybody, Anybody, Somebody and Nobody: Whose Job is Safety Anyway?"
Being Part of the Construction Family
As the world advances by leaps and bounds, we are aided by an ever evolving digital world that aims to make our lives more streamlined and efficient. Tablets and smartphones are being integrated into our daily processes, but there seems to be an unintended side effect; we are losing the ability to personally connect and trust.
This presentation will help you relearn the importance of being part of the construction family. Experienced and new workers will discover the value of the give-and-take in a working relationship. Once we reestablish effective connections, we can use our collections of personal stories to tell our own tales of safety. We all have the capability to save someone's life, we just have to be willing to share a little of our own.
