The Million Dollar Question.
Bob, a safety committee chairperson, works in an industry where workers are required to wear personal protective equipment (PPE). When people don’t wear the appropriate PPE, the results can be devastating because workers are exposed to the hazards of high voltage electricity. As Bob explains: "We had someone get hurt last month because he wasn’t wearing sleeves with his high voltage rubber gloves. We all know that it’s a good work practice to wear the sleeves, so why doesn’t everyone just do it? Why don’t they get it?"
"Why don’t workers get it?" That’s the $1,000,000 question.
We’d like to throw the spanner in the works and ask the question,
“Why don’t employers get it?”
