The Price Of Integrity

Promises are easily made. Keeping them often proves more difficult because when we are pressured to strive always for perfection, we find it simpler to agree to undertake impossible tasks than to say no. Whenever you give your word to someone, you have to follow through on it. You have to keep your word, because

Worst Case Scenario

The part in our brain that has the capacity to think of worst case scenarios is called the cerebral cortex. It’s right under the forehead. Interestingly enough, this area of the brain isn’t mature until the late teens and early twenties. So, when you ask a child to imagine the worst possible result from a

What’s Your Excuse?

Is there ever an acceptable excuse not to work safely? In one sense or another we get confronted with this question every day. There are deadlines and people looking over our shoulders (sometimes literally), or the weather is nasty and we want to take that little short cut to get the job done quicker. All

Dumb Luck

Every once in a while I hear about somebody getting caught in a dumb situation. Many times it is a criminal that just hadn’t completely thought through their strategy.

My Brother’s Keeper

A short time ago I was visiting a mining plant in southern Utah. On that very day there was a fatality. It was shocking and saddening. Later I returned to speak to that same company, and I referred back to the death of their co-worker. The group was somber and quiet. The principles of safety
