…That every man or women bears the unalterable responsibility for keeping out of harm’s way. This he or she owes to him or herself, their family, their fellows and his or her job.
…that no man or women lives or works entirely alone. He or she is involved with all men and women, touched by their accomplishments, marked by failures. If he or she fails the man or women beside them, they fail themselves, and will share the burden of that loss. The true horror of an accident is the realization that man or woman has failed themselves -and more- that his or her fellows have failed them.
…that accidents are conceived in improper attitudes, and born in moments of action without thought. They will cease to be only when the proper attitude is strong enough to precede the act – when the right attitude creates the awareness that controls the act.
…that the prevention of accidents is an objective which crosses all levels of ranks, organization and procedure.
…that freedom from harm is not a privilege but a goal to be achieved and perpetuated day by day.
… that the elimination of injury and pain through accidents is a moral obligation upon which the final measure of our performance directly depends.
