Get them talking:

When is someone most-likely to get hurt around here?

What time of day? Which day of the week?


Keep them talking:

What are some other times we need to be “extra-careful” about safety?

What can we do to help people avoid becoming complacent about the risks we face?

Points to consider:

The Bureau of Labor Statistics says more injuries happen on Mondays than other days of the week, and that most injuries happen between two and four hours after the shift starts.

OSHA has published statistics that injuries “spike” on the days after a holiday weekend.

Of course, injuries can happen any time, any day, and it’s up to us to stay focused. But the human brain is not very good at maintaining attention on one thing, day in and day out. That’s why we need to keep safety “fresh” and find new and interesting ways to help people remember all the ways someone could get hurt on the job.
