he explained. "We have safety plans that are adhered to and
reviewed, regularly scheduled safety meetings and accountability at all levels. We also work to be as comprehensive as
possible with our safety focus. For example, in addition to
talking about environmental safety and slip-and-fall protection, we also go over topics like heat stress in the summer,
cold stress in the winter, respiratory protection and so on."
Such conversations are critical for keeping safety top

A safety culture also can help to correct the mistaken
assumption that an accident-free workplace means everyone
must be following safe work practices.
"I think there is a high potential to have a false sense of
security if you only look at reactive, lagging indicators,"
Scheuren noted. "As long as you don't have any accidents,
you can think that everything is under control - until
it suddenly isn't. An accident will occur, and everyone is
surprised and wonders how that happened." However, she
added, "Accidents generally don't 'just happen.' They result
from system failures that were likely occurring for quite a
