We take safety beyond the typed word and into practice, enabling every worker to do their job with understanding, competence and, most importantly, to do it safely. Safety isn’t just everyone’s right, it is everyone’s obligation. Whether through leadership, work methods or process creation and adherence, it is our commitment to each other, our first priority and the achievement we will always take most pride in.

Everyone on the project, whether our employee or a subcontractor, is our responsibility and must abide by our standards, our processes & pledge to our safety commitment.

A Good Project cannot exist without the achievement of exemplary safety.

Nowhere in this book will you find any mention of perfection, zero errors, flawless performance, or infallible humans. That’s because human fallibility is like gravity, weather, and terrain, just another forseeable hazard. Error is pervasive. The unexpected is pervasive. By now that message should be clear. What is not pervasive are well-developed skills to detect and contain these errors at their early stages’ ~ Quote from Weick. Managing the Unexpected p. 67
Out of clutter find simplicity; From discord find harmony; In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity ~ Albert Einstein
Better a thousand times careful than once dead. ~ Proverb
A smart man makes a mistake, learns from it, and never makes that mistake again. But a wise man finds a smart man and learns from him how to avoid the mistake altogether. ~ Roy H. Williams
It's better to crash into a nap than to nap into a crash. ~ Author Unknown
The safety of the people shall be the highest law. ~ Marcus Tullius Cicero
I will say that I cannot imagine any condition which could cause a ship to founder. I cannot conceive of any vital disaster happening to this vessel. Modern shipbuilding has gone beyond that. ~ Captain EJ Smith (Captain of the Titanic)
Better a few minutes late in this life than 5 minutes early in the next ~ Unknown
What a strange sense of logic to fixate on the absence of something (injury) as a demonstration of the presence of something else (safety). Such a proposition misunderstands the dynamic of risk and being human. ~ Dr Robert Long
Accidents, and particularly street and highway accidents, do not happen - they are caused. ~ Ernest Greenwood
It will never happen to me ~ Captain EJ Smith (Captain of the Titanic)
Eliminate slogans, exhortations, and targets for the work force asking for zero defects and new levels of productivity. Such exhortations only create adversarial relationships, as the bulk of the causes of low quality and low productivity belong to the system and thus lie beyond the power of the work force ~ W. Edwards Deming
The real enemy of safety is not non-compliance but non-thinking ~ Dr Rob Long
Your best safety gear is between your ears. ~ Author Unknown
When any one asks me how I can best describe my experiences of nearly forty years at sea I merely say uneventful. Of course, there have been Winter gales and storms and fog and the like, but in all my experience I have never been in an accident of any sort worth speaking about. I have seen but one vessel in distress in all my years at sea, a brig, the crew of which was taken off in a small boat in charge of my third officer. I never saw a wreck and have never been wrecked, nor was I ever in any predicament that threatened to end in disaster of any sort. ~ Captain EJ Smith (Captain of the Titanic)
