Think what if – Not if only

In safety these six words, “think what if – not if only” can help focus employers, managers and employees when thinking about safety.

By thinking about what could happen when completing risk assessments or carrying out your daily work tasks in respect of keeping yourself and colleagues safe at work you will be in a better position to prevent accidents or incidents.

Too often we hear “if only …..” after an incident or accident has occurred; it’s too late at this stage as there is nothing we can do about the situation that has now occurred except prevent it from happening again which costs time money and effort that could have been avoided.
