Team­work and Safe­ty
On the bas­ket­ball court, my job was to be there for my team­mates and pro­tect the bas­ket. I always had their backs and com­mu­ni­cat­ed that to them on the court. This gave my team­mates the con­fi­dence to play aggres­sive defense know­ing I was behind them, there to back them up. My job on the bas­ket­ball court was to be there­for team­mates. To always have their back and com­mu­ni­cate that to them on the floor.
 

Over the past ten years I have deliv­ered hun­dreds of Safe­ty pre­sen­ta­tions to com­pa­nies around the coun­try who are ded­i­cat­ed to being there for their employ­ees each and every day. To insure they watch out for each oth­er and go home safe­ly each night to their fam­i­lies.

No mat­ter the field you’re in, every job has some degree of risk. Safe­ty train­ing, prop­er equip­ment usage and a sharp eye will give you a base­line for secu­ri­ty. How­ev­er, true safe­ty comes from know­ing some­one else is look­ing out for you.
 A Case Study
A few years ago I did a series of pre­sen­ta­tions for a large util­i­ty com­pa­ny in the Mid­west.
Their inter­nal research uncov­ered the shock­ing fact that 70% of all their work­place acci­dents occurred when some­one else, anoth­er employ­ee, was in close prox­im­i­ty.
70%! Where were their team­mates? Why didn’t they say some­thing?
The com­pa­ny start­ed a cam­paign to train their teams to speak up, raise a hand or stop some­one who might be tak­ing an unnec­es­sary risk at work. They uti­lized the Four Com­mit­ments of a Win­ning and Safe Team to teach peo­ple to watch each other’s backs. They became a true team.
Do your team­mates know you have their back? Can they count on you to be there for them? To reset a job site or process before some­one gets hurt?
Action Step
Safe­ty tru­ly does start with you. The only way some­one else will be there for you is if you let them know you are there for them first. For their Safe­ty. Who will you start with? Home is always the eas­i­est place to start. Who will you pat on the back and say, let’s think this through one more time? If you com­mit your­self to pro­tect­ing oth­ers, you can expect to see a strong com­mit­ment to you in return. That’s true Safety.That’s team­work!
