Challenge: Remind other people of the rules

Working safely starts with you, but don't keep it to yourself. Help other people and keep each other alert. Take a critical look at your own performance, be open to feedback and draw people’s attention to any unsafe behaviour. And don't forget to give compliments too!

Golden Rule 1: I speak out about unsafe working practices

  • Take immediate action in the event of an unsafe situation.
  • Take responsibility for your own safety and that of others.
  • Address colleagues about unsafe or irresponsible behaviour.
  • Report unsafe situations immediately so that colleagues can learn from them.
  • Discuss safety dilemmas with your manager.
  • Accept it when colleagues speak to you about unsafe behaviour.
