SAFETY DESK: Safety All Around You
As we head into the holiday seasons, there will be an increase in the volume of delivery vehicles. But a child playing by the side of the road had one UPS driver shaking like a leaf.
The driver had parked his truck to deliver a package, and as he walked across the street, he noticed a woman clearing leaves in her yard.
Then he noticed something incredibly scary: a little boy lying in a huge pile of leaves in the street!
He was barely visible to anyone driving down the street; the UPS driver only knew he was there because of his hat.
This is a great reminder to always pay attention to your surroundings and to try to think ahead about possible safety issues.
It’s also a reminder that safety doesn’t stop when you get home. And as you celebrate Thanksgiving this week with plenty of turkey, football, and family, take a minute to remind yourself why safety is so important.
Just looking around the room, I’m sure you’ll see plenty of reasons.
Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!
