Injury prevention begins with awareness. Most injuries occur in a moment of haste or inattention. Think before you act! Ask yourself, is this the safest way to do the job? Injuries are costly to you and the company. Beyond the obvious pain, injuries cost you income and reduced quality of life. They cost the company money and quality of service. When you are not able to perform the duties of your job, we all lose.
