To Be Safe, Be Mindful

To Be Safe, Be Mindful

by Laura Chapman

The human attention span is now 8 seconds – so chances are you won’t make it to the end of this blog … but it might just save your life (or at least save you from a workplace accident).

Consider this:
  • Being distracted for just 2.8 seconds doubles the likelihood of an error; and
  • 73% of workplace slips, trips, and falls occur because the person is distracted.
In a world full of distractions, the most important ingredient to safety in the workplace (or at home or on the road!) is not procedure, knowledge, or training – it’s mindfulness.
