Taking Short Cuts Is Common Practice May 1
Everyone takes a shortcut at one time or another. Kids jump the fence
instead of using the gate. Pedestrians cross streets between intersections.
In many cases, a shortcut involves danger.
Break The Habit
If you have the habit of taking dangerous shortcuts, break it. In our work it
can be deadly. A construction worker who tried to cross an opening by
swinging on reinforcing rods slipped and fell 20' onto a concrete floor. If he
had taken a few moments to walk around the opening, he'd still be tying
Avoid Dangerous Situations
If you are told to go to a particular work area, the Company expects you to
take the safe route, not the shorter, more hazardous one. The Company,
however, can't be a guardian angel sitting on your shoulder. Avoiding
dangerous shortcuts is up to you. Moreover, it is your responsibility to
warn anyone else you see taking them.
What If There's No Safe Way To Get There
Let me know. And I'll see that the necessary means of access is provided.
Shortcuts More Dangerous At Heights
Even though the job may take but a few minutes, do not climb on false
work or an improvised platform. Use the ladder or scaffold. In addition, do
not go from one elevation to another by climbing a column or sliding down
a rope. Ladders, steps, and walkways are built to save your neck as well
as for your convenience. Use them.
The safe way is not always the shortest way. But it's the surest way by far.
