See It For The First Time

When we are exposed to the same hazards time and time again, we generally know what to do to manage them because we have been repeatedly exposed and learned to manage those hazards. But this does not necessarily mean that we will always mitigate these risks – in fact in many cases the familiarity of these hazards themselves pose an even subtler and perhaps even more dangerous hazard in the form of complacency. It is important for each and every one to take the time and try and see things with fresh eyes as if you are seeing your job site and tasks for the first time.
