  • Sir Brian Appleton- “Safety is not an intellectual exercise to keep us in work. It is a matter of life and death. It is the sum of our contributions to safety management that determines whether the people we work with live or die.”
  • Sir Brian Appleton- “Safety is not an intellectual exercise to keep us in work. It is a matter of life and death. It is the sum of our contributions to safety management that determines whether the people we work with live or die.”
  • William Blake- “What is now proven was once only imagined.” Hindsight is a wonderful thing but foresight is better, especially when it comes to saving life, or some pain”!
  • Dave Collins- “Spruiking zero harm or crusading safety ‘because you care’ raises as much suspicion as having a folder on your computer named ‘DEFINITELY NOT PORN’ – would you get on a plane that had “ZERO CRASH” emblazoned all over it?”
  • Dave Collins- “If Safety is “Zero Harm” then Love must be “Zero Hate”
  • Dave Collins- “Off the shelf Safety Systems – if you want a good dust collector, buy a vacuum cleaner.”

Such exhortations only create adversarial relationships, as the bulk of the causes of low quality and low productivity belong to the system and thus lie beyond the power of the work force.”
  • William Edwards Deming- “Cease dependence on inspection to achieve quality. Eliminate the need for massive inspection by building quality into the product in the first place.”
  • William Edwards Deming- “Whenever there is fear, you will get wrong figures.”

  • Dr. Rae Drew- “The stories that other disciplines have all have heroes, and in safety, our stories don’t. Our stories have villains and they have victims.”
  • Dr. Rae Drew- “I think mostly we tell stories simply in order to motivate people through fear.”
  • Dr. Rae Drew- “Our big ideas in safety result from disasters like Deepwater Horizon, Chernobyl and Piper Alpha.”
  • Dr. Rae Drew- “We use stories of the past to tell us what we should have done, and then we turn those into stories about the future: what we should do instead or bad things are going to happen.”
  • Dr. Rae Drew- “What I find most sinister is that we don’t just do this with the big accidents… We do it with very human stories as well.”
  • Dr. Rae Drew- “We figuratively and sometimes quite literally drag out maimed and injured people as object moral lessons in the ways people should behave. We say, ‘This is what happens to you if you don’t follow the instructions.”
  • Dr. Rae Drew- “Essentially what we’re doing is we’re drawing upon the ghosts of disaster past and specters of disaster future and we’re using it to justify the bureaucracy we want to put into the present.”
  • Albert Einstein- “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”
  • Albert Einstein- “Concern for man himself and his safety must always for the chief interest of all technical endeavor. Never forget this in the midst of your diagrams and equations.”

  • Eleanor Everet- “For safety is not a gadget but a state of mind.” 
  • Max Geyer- “For if you force your people to stick rigidly to procedures, and their thinking to be stifled from their induction, and then blame them for failing to recognize a changed condition (and suffering an injury) to which their first education disposed them, what else is to be concluded from this, but that you first make robots and then punish them (for being robotic).”
  • John Green- “Our systems have become the equivalent of the Internet – it’s where you go to get answers without even really knowing the question or the context. Through the excessive use of processes, procedure, checklists and forms we have dumbed down their curiosity.”
  • Kevin Jones- “We would also ask real estate agents, who much they think our house is worth.  But we never ask a safety professional, socially, how do I stay safe at work.  In my experience, when people find out I am a safety professional, there is a deafening silence as, either, people don’t know that safety has a profession or my skills just seem irrelevant.”
  • Phil LaDuke- “Injuries happen when workers get caught between the official way versus the real way.”

  • Phil LaDuke- “We can get a monkey in here to try hard; you get no points for being stupid.”
  • Phil La Duke- “For every misunderstood genius there are 100 perfectly understood idiots.”
  • Phil LaDuke- “Telling me to be careful is very different to saving my life”
  • Phil Laduke- “Too often we exaggerate the risk of a hazard and categorize what is merely possible as probable because it is easier to enforce than if we make an honest assessment. Some safety professionals, in the name of “zero-injuries” will heap regulation after regulation on a job until the organization rebels and simply refuses to comply. When it comes to making the workplace safer, the more complex and/or burdensome the solution the far less likely the compliance. We have to understand that there are limits to the amount of protection we can provide to people and if when exceed the perceived reasonable limits we not only fail to protect in that instance but we lose credibility and jeopardize compliance with safety protocols that are essential for basic safety. When safety professionals’ risk tolerance is out of alignment with societal norms the safety professional is doomed to a life of frustration.”
  • Andrew Lang- “He uses statistics as a drunken man uses lamp posts…for support rather than illumination.”
  • T.J. Larkin- “If it is not face-to-face it is not communication.”
  • Chad Lilley- “Now: target zero; zero harm; no accidents, although they all look good on paper, they all focus on what you want to avoid. Imagine setting your business goals at the start of the year and presenting a goal of wanting to avoid any financial loss this coming year to the board. They would boot you straight out of the room! So, for what reason do we accept that with safety?”
  • Rob Long- “Thank god we don’t have to rely on the brilliance of the safety trade to determine what is art, history, aesthetics, dance or intelligence, I think safety would paint over the Mona Lisa if they thought it was unsafe.”
  • Dr. Rob Long- “Stress is not bad but a necessary part of facing life’s challenges. Whilst the dreamers maintain the delusion that ‘all accidents are preventable’ the rest of us know that the bumps and challenges of life are necessary for learning, resilience and maturation. There can be no resilience without stress, and no learning without risk.”
  • Dr Rob Long- “It seems that risk aversion is the best excuse for the day when you want compliance. Every time something is banned or restricted it is because it’s a ‘safety requirement’. No wonder people think safety is an embuggerance! When we want to bamboozle people who don’t know the Act or Regulation we can mystify, dazzle and mesmerize them with it’s a ‘safety requirement’ when in reality it is often a convenience behind the scenes to make someone’s life easier.”
  • Dr Rob Long- “Rules are parts of systems and systems serve humans not humans serve systems. Unfortunately, safety engineers seem to think that humans serve systems.”
  • Dr. Rob Long- “if we accept that there is no such thing as ‘zero risk’ then we should not spin the meaning of words with assertions such as ‘all accidents are preventable.”
  • Dr. Rob Long- “We make thousands of decisions every day in automatic mode without a mistake. Yet we don’t reflect and celebrate this wonderful mode of human decision making at work rather, we put the blow torch on the one moment when it doesn’t work and something goes wrong.”
  • Dr. Robert Long- “Measuring Safety Performance by the number of injuries you have is like measuring parenting by the number of smacks you give.”
  • Dr Robert Long- “What a strange sense of logic to fixate on the absence of something (injury) as a demonstration of the presence of something else (safety). Such a proposition misunderstands the dynamic of risk and being human.”
  • Dr. Rob Long- “If your world is just about safety, then your world is too small.”
  • Dr Rob Long- “The real enemy of safety is not non-compliance but non-thinking.”
  • Dr. Rob Long- “The language of ‘bloody idiot’ and ‘common sense’ is everywhere in industry and demonstrates a profound inability to understand sense making, mindfulness, perception and motivation.” 
  • Dr. Rob Long- “If safety is ‘common sense’ then we need no trainers, training programs, safety officers, inductions or safety legislation.”
  • Nelson Mandela- “If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.”
  • Thomas More, Utopia- “For if you suffer your people to be ill-educated, and their manners to be corrupted from their infancy, and then punish them for those crimes to which their first education disposed them, what else is to be concluded from this, but that you first make thieves and then punish them.”
  • Napoleon- “There is no such thing as an accident, only a failure to recognize the hand of fate.”

  • Alan Quilley- “Anyone who believes that they have common sense has simply forgotten who taught them what they know.”
  • Alan Quilley- “Let’s manage safety recognizing how humans are and stop managing safety the way we wish humans were.”
  • George Robotham- “The biggest problem with safety is that managers and safety professionals often engage in acts of public masturbation.”
  • George Robotham – “Be a life-long learner and encourage those in your team to be the same, I see an important part of my role is to help those in the safety team to develop their skills.”
  • Rob Sams- “I’m just not that into safety anymore.”
  • Wynand Serfontein- “Zero Harm” is a “do not” target. “Do” targets are possible, while “do not” is often impossible. The focus should be on aspects like “the best available and reasonable safety practices”, or “improved measures” or “better hazard/ risk identification.” These are things that can be done. If you tell me “do not get injured”, I am going to ask you “How will I not get injured?” What will your answer be? (If you do have an answer, I bet it will probably be a list of things I should DO.)
  • William Shakespeare - “Out of this nettle, danger, we pluck this flower, safety.”
  • Barry Spud- “Safety is 30% Common Sense, 80% Compliance and the rest is good luck.”
  • Mark Twain- “Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear.”
  • Weick, Managing the Unexpected- “Nowhere in this book will you find any mention of perfection, zero errors, flawless performance, or infallible humans. That’s because human fallibility is like gravity, weather, and terrain, just another foreseeable hazard. Error is pervasive. The unexpected is pervasive. By now that message should be clear. What is not pervasive are well-developed skills to detect and contain these errors at their early stages.”
  • Gerald Wilde- “Also, they may simply have been blinded by their zeal to do something quick and easy for safety – and thus doing nothing for it.”
  • Proverbs 22:3- “A prudent man foresees the difficulties ahead and prepares for them; the simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences.”
  • Seinfeld, George with Cleaning Woman- “Was it wrong to have sex with the cleaning woman on my desk?  If I had only seen the safety compliance video, this wouldn’t have been a problem.”
  • South African Judge- “The concept of the bonus paterfamilias is not that of a timorous faintheart always in trepidation lest he or others suffer some injury; on the contrary, he ventures out into the world, engages in affairs and takes reasonable chances. He takes reasonable precautions to protect his person and property and expects others to do likewise.”
  • Tier 1 company Supervisor- “Luckily my company has a Zero Harm policy so I don’t have to worry about safety as much as others do.”
  • Unknown- “Like love, we cannot get enough safety, but not the kind we are used to – what would happen to love if every day were Valentine’s Day? So flooded are we with contrived and controlling safety that it is becoming dangerous.”
  • Unknown- “Traditional Safety is not enough, but traditional safety is too much.”
  • Unknown- “A health & safety problem can be described by statistics but cannot be understood by statistics. It can only be understood by knowing and feeling the pain, anguish, and depression and shattered hopes of the victim and of wives, husbands, parents, children, grandparents and friends, and the hope, struggle and triumph of recovery and rehabilitation in a world often unsympathetic, ignorant, unfriendly and unsupportive, only those with close experience of life altering personal damage have this understanding.”
  • Unknown- “Attempting too big a change and / or changing things too quickly can create an adverse reaction and alienate the very people you want to make allies.
