Everybody would like to live safely, but risks are unavoidable. Our individual risk tolerance depends on many factors, some of which include genetics, our heritage and past experiences, our engrained values, and our training. These are compounded by the momentary influences of factors like theperceived advantage to be gained, our mental and physical condition, and numerous external pressures.
Many times we do not even realize the risks that surround us. We fail to properly assess the probabilities and consequences. Most of the time we are lucky and nothing happens, but let’s be honest, accident do not always happen to others…
The following basic rules can help us live more safely:
- If it seems unsafe, it probably is.
- Common sense is often your best tool.
- If you see it, you own it. If you recognize a hazard, take responsibility. Make others aware of the hazard, and, if possible, rectify it quickly.
|Safety is a Lifestyle|
|Safety is never a momentary condition. Each person needs to make their own concious decision to live safely. We believe in the value of changing mindsets, even if this is a slow, methodical process.|
|We work with clients and partners who believe in the value of long term collaboration, and who aren’t looking just to tick a box or get the lowest price. “The bitterness of poor quality lingers long after the sweetness of low cost is forgotten”.|
|Transparent, Simple Systems|
|Human errors most often derive from a failure latent somewhere in the process or system. We aim to shed light on these critical weak links, and develop systems which are transparent and easily understood.|
|Tailor-made, Practical Solutions|
|At Blazer we’ve all been responsible managers in industry; we understand that our partners need effective, economical programs. We understand organizational complexities and help our clients find solutions that break across internal barriers.|
|As in all human relations, we strive to communicate openly and directly with our clients. We believe in the value of continual information sharing.|
|We believe in an accident-free workplace, so we work together with clients whose top management is committed to achieve this goal.|
