We need to recognize when we are exposed to a Serious Injury or Fatality (SIF) situation and be willing to invest the time & effort to exercise “positive personal control” over our own well being through the application of multiple layers of protection involving barriers, controls, and defenses -- to protect ourselves and co-workers from “serious harm” should we make an “honest mistake” or the unexpected or unintended occurs.

Topics addressed include:
● Significant Hazards, Hazardous Energies, High Risk Activities
