National Safety Month
I don’t know about you, but I completely obsess when I’m trying to make a big change, achieve a personal goal, adopt a new behavior or switch to a new way of thinking. Whether it’s getting in 10,000 daily steps, eating more fruits and vegetables or drinking eight glasses of water every day – it takes unwavering focus and effort to change our actions, and even more continuous effort to change our mindsets and convert our behaviors long-term.
At SERVPRO of North Cabarrus County & China Grove, one of our five core values is Safety Obsession – an unwavering focus on safety designed to change not just our behavior but our mindset about what it means to be safe.
But safety at work is only half of the equation. The other half is what happens outside of work. Why? Because we want all employees to return safely to their families, homes and communities at the end of each work day. We need to think about safety not just through the lens of work; we need to think about safety from all angles and all sides.
I look forward to exploring in future blogs the practices, behaviors and commitments required to build a Safety mindset. For now, I hope you will join me, not just for National Safety Month, but every day, in making your own safety and the safety of others a priority — no, an obsession.
