They say a problem shared is a problem halved. Keeping knowledge to yourself certainly doesn’t make you any wiser. It does not make you indispensable either and it doesn’t even say much for whom you’re or may be it does – in a negative way.
It is good to talk
One thing is sure though, it is guaranteed to lead you to errors in the workplace or even in your home; costly errors that could result in a lot of pain and suffering for you and yours for a long time to come. Yet it costs very precious little in the workplace to talk. I think the phone companies got it right in their jingle when they say it is good to talk.
It is time you signed on to talking and sharing safety-critical information on the shop floor, coffee room, during lunch hour breaks to carry though the message and reduce the chances of traumatic events in your workplace. It needs not be stuffy and rigid conversation, light-hearted exchange of helpful safety information can do a lot to lift a whole lot of weight of uncertainty off a colleague’s shoulders.
No one needs get hurt....
Whatever we know and share is a growing deposit in the workplace safety bank accounts with a lot of yield on interest for everyone. Don’t hesitate to sign on to it.
No one needs get hurt; no product loss need occur, and no part of the environment need be breached. We’ve now got to better deploy our tools, equipment and other resources for our set goals to be within sight. Sharing information through better and improved communication systems and channels is the name of the game, the new game.
