You’re about to start working on a new job. Wait. Stop. Do you know your whole job? Everything about it, that needs to be known? If not, you may want to go back and do your homework on the project. Researching and preparing beforehand is extremely important for guaranteeing safety. If you try to figure out your safety precautions while you are doing a project it will ultimately cause problems. It slows down the process of your project being completed when you have to figure out what to do while you are doing it. Furthermore, it can cause safety hazards when you do not know your whole project before it’s start. It can not be reiterated enough the safety is of the utmost importance on a work site. Trying to figure out safety before as you work is an accident waiting to happen. Part of a job includes the preparation. In fact, the preparation might actually be the most important part. Knowing all about your job before you start will not only make the work run more smoothly but it ensures safety for everyone involved. That is why it is or motto to “know before we go” on a job.
