There are many reasons or excuses an individual will point to when asked why they are not performing a work task the right way. Some of these reasons include:
- There is not time to do the task the right way
- Management does not enforce the rules or has unrealistic expectations
- I have done it this way for years and nothing bad has ever happened
- I do not have the energy to do the task the way you want it done
Regardless of the reason, taking the easy route when it comes to ensuring safe work practices and procedures are being followed leaves you and everyone else around you at risk.
