Safety Awakening – “A Rising Tide Lifts All Ships”

“A Rising Tide Lifts All Ships”  

It is preferrable to invest a safety career with a company that is growing and profitable.  Such a company has money for raises, equipment and machinery upgrades, training, adequate safety staff, and quality employees.

I have worked for companies that were not doing well financially.  Often the first thing they cut back on are safety related expenditures and even the safety staff.  They see these safety related expenses as “luxuries” that are not absolutely necessary.

Poorly performing companies are often taken over by larger more profitable companies.  Usually, the safety staff of the smaller company get the short end of the stick and are released.

If you are working for a company that is not doing well financially, read the handwriting on the wall and start actively looking for another job.   It is always better to have a job when interviewing for another position.  Interviewing for a new job while you are unemployed is a very weak position to be in, and you will be much less likely to land a job.
