Are You Competent When it comes to Safety?
Competency – it's a word we hear bantered about when we discuss workers' knowledge, skills, and aptitude with regard to safety. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have a fully competent workforce, where every person was fully capable of performing work safely? Some might say that's Utopia. (The word means "no-place" or "non-existent place.") In other words, they might say there's no possibility of having a workplace where everyone is proficient in knowing and applying safety rules, practices, and procedures. It's a challenge worth taking up, wouldn't you agree?
