When I start working in a new location I always take notice of exits in case of an emergency. That is the first step of safety for me. Our company has a training class on safety where they teach you the correct way to pick up heavy items, walk up or down stairs, and how to handle emergency situations such as fire, tornado, shootings, etc. I would ask your employer if they have any safety guidelines. Many companies have OSHA requirements and it is readily available to employees.

Hi Jamon,
Think about and practice safety all the time. Do not take short cuts to save time. Check to make sure your equipment, tools, clothing are in good shape and that they are right for whatever it is you are doing. Use common sense. If it looks like there may be a problem or something could go wrong, stop and find a better safer way before you start. If you are not sure, ask someone else that has done the job before. Read the instructions and be aware of any safety warnings that are available.

Jamon,
Safety shall be present in our day-by-day activities, at work or home (and in-between :) ).
I work in an office, so I pay attention in the electrical installations conditions, light levels and ergonomic posture, however I also pay attention in the way I take to arrive to office (quality of roads, objects that can take to falling, leaking in the floor, stairs, traffic) and to the people around me.
I usually alert facilities or EHS teams if I see something that might be an issue.
Usually accidents occur when people are distracted or if someone thinks it is "other people" obligation to take care of that.
Knowing first aid actions and emergency channels are also essential.
I hope it helps :)

Jamon, it is good to be ready for emergencies. During your entire lifetime, I hope you will take life saving courses, first aid lessons, and, encouraged people to do the same: Take water courses , even if you do not like the water, read books on the subject. If you see someone choking at Walmart or on the street, do not hesitate, grab the person, big or small, from the back, squeeze hard below their rib cage...you can save a life. good luck. geny h
