WHAT INCIDENT AND INJURY-FREE IS


NOT

It is NOT the same as zero

It is NOT a goal, but rather a journey

It is NOT a guarantee

It is NOT a prescription

It is NOT the elimination of all risks

WHAT IS
INCIDENT AND INJURY-FREE

2002 JMJ Associates


All Rights Reserved

It is about caring for one another and


demonstrating that care on a daily
basis
It is about all workers going home
safely every day no kidding
It is about a mindset intolerant of any
level of injury (remember the Injury
Pyramid)

WHAT IS
INCIDENT AND INJURY-FREE

2002 JMJ Associates


All Rights Reserved

It is about taking responsibility for


your own safety and those that work
with you and around you
It is about being proactive and asking
questions such as what is the most
dangerous thing that can happen to
me on this job/task and how can I
mitigate against it?

WHAT IS
INCIDENT AND INJURY-FREE

It is about an attitude of choosing to


follow the safety rules and procedures
(versus having to follow them)
It is about speaking up and expressing
your concern when you see something
unsafe
