Most accidents are caused by the failure to use common sense.

Here are some common sense safety rules:

  • Treat safety as an important part of your job
  • Keep your full attention on what you are doing
  • Know and follow the company safety rules
  • Use the required protective equipment
  • Remind your coworkers about safety procedures and equipment
  • Pay attention during safety training programs and meetings
  • Know what to do in case of an emergency
  • Ask questions when you don’t understand
  • Don’t fool around or show off on the job
  • Don’t let anger; frustration or personal problems interfere with your work
  • Don’t ignore a safety hazard
  • Don’t become overconfident with jobs you’ve done many times
  • Don’t use equipment in ways they were not intended
  • Don’t get pressured by others into ignoring safety procedures
  • Don’t take shortcuts on the job
  • Don’t assume safety is someone else’s job
