A little thought can make all the difference

Artistry in Safety

creativity_504x428Over the last few weeks, I have written about being a Warrior and an Explorer with regard to safety. But these are only two of the personality types you need to make a safety program work.

The third is The Artist. Someone has to find new ways, apply creativity and find the path that no one has seen before. We work with people of so many backgrounds, and while a promise of reward for a safe week/month/year may appeal to some, others recognize the value of safety as its own reward.

Remember that everything we see around us is a result of someone’s creativity. Someone’s ideas brought to reality. You can be an Artist.

We need to be artists at times. We need to consider the materials at hand and the audience we are trying to reach, and develop ways to communicate a message or an idea that will appeal to the broadest cross-section possible.

Sometimes you just need to spill the paint to see what’s possible.
Are you an Artist? Do you bring your most creative self to problems solving and to the materials at hand?

Let’s be careful out there.
