Most accidents are caused by the failure to use common sense. 

Here are some common sense safety rules:

  • Treat safety as an important part of your job
  • Keep your full attention on what you are doing
  • Know and follow the company safety rules
  • Use the required protective equipment
  • Remind your coworkers about safety procedures and equipment
  • Pay attention during safety training programs and meetings
  • Know what to do in case of an emergency
  • Ask questions when you don’t understand
  • Don’t fool around or show off on the job
  • Don’t let anger; frustration or personal problems interfere with your work
  • Don’t ignore a safety hazard
  • Don’t become overconfident with jobs you’ve done many times
  • Don’t use equipment in ways they were not intended
  • Don’t get pressured by others into ignoring safety procedures
  • Don’t take shortcuts on the job
  • Don’t assume safety is someone else’s job

I can't begin to express just how many incidents I've investigated that would have been prevented if these rules had been followed. This list is truly the lexicon for working safely. Thanks for sharing.
