Workplace safety

to keep me safe i would refuse to do unsafe work, listen to all instructions when being trained on the job, and read all safety labels on the bottles to make sure iam using the right ones at all times to stay safe.

to keep others safe i would make sure that everything i do at work is left safe and not to leave stuff in dangerous places and if i see something dangerous or unsafe in the work place i would let my manager or supervisor know.

the one story that stuck with me more than the others was matthew’s story because he got the gut feeling that it was unsafe to proceed carrying the bucket of hot water but still did it. a co worker asked if he was ok and he said yes then after spilled the bucket. i know now that if someone in your workplace tells you to do something unsafe or something you know is not allowed you have the right to refuse.
