Safety Spotlight

Why I work safe: For my family and loved ones. I want to return home at the end of my work day the same way I left in the morning. 

Safety has been a priority: Ever since I can remember.

What piqued my interest in safety: An incident that happened many years ago. My supervisor at the time had built a scaffold that I felt was unsafe. I refused to get on it and he fired me on the spot. Since then I have been interested in workplace safety. 

Number of safety manuals I own: Five.

My top 5 safety tips are to be cautious while: 1. Be cautious when getting on/off equipment; 2. Look forward, behind, left and right before equipment or vehicle backing; 3. Check carefully for overhead or buried obstructions; 4. Take notice of an overcrowded work area; 5. Ensure Lock out/Tag out procedures are followed.

My safety motto: If safety is “common sense,” then we would not need trainers, training programs, safety officers, OSHA, etc…

Interesting safety fact: Florida is rated among the top 5 in the nation for employees in the construction industry.
