As a manager, my job involves safety training for the employees, but most people in the company see it as a waste of resources. I’ve had to come up with very strong arguments against their attitude.
Coworker #1: “I have to go to [XYZ Industrial Plant with very strict safety rules] next month.”
Me: “You’ll need an escape mask. Before you go, remind me to show you how to use it.”
Coworker #2: “Isn’t it excessive? She’s only staying one day!”
Me: “And the Titanic only made one cruise…”
Remember your PPE is important everyday, it is your protection when anything can happen.
