“Safety is not the absence of threat; it is the presence of connection.” – Gabor Mate, Hungarian-Canadian physician
Doing anything in a workplace involves risk. Risk has a positive and negative connotation for a business person since competition introduces threats for which the business has to adapt and change in order to survive. Safety helps to mitigate and manage those risks to ensure injuries and losses don’t occur, resulting in the workplace being more effective and efficient. And it is safety that connects us all in the workplace. Align, adjust, adapt.
