    Off-The-Job Accidents Costly
According to the National Safety Council, over 77,000 deaths
occurred off-the-job in 1963. Over seven million disabling injuries
were recorded during the year.
The average cost for each off-the-job injury for one company was
found to amount to $350.00. For each employee the average cost runs
as high as $10.00 annually.
Company expenses for off-the-job injuries include replacement
costs, new training programs, reduced efficiency and lowered morale.
We always hear about the “absent-minded professor” and most of
us get a laugh from events resulting from people not keeping their
minds on what they are doing. But, if everyone would stop and think,
absent-mindedness could create a serious injury, perhaps even take a
life. All humor is then gone from being like the “absent-minded pro
fessor.”
A person driving a car often lets his thoughts stray. This could be
dangerous. A glance over the shoulder while driving could result in
death.
Stepping off the curb without looking in either direction could be
come an absent-minded final step. Climbing a ladder to get a kitten
out of a tree, or to put in a new light bulb without remembering to
brace the ladder could cause a leg or an arm to be broken.
Over 26,000 deaths occurred in home accidents during 1963. Over
four million disabling injuries occurred in the home last year.
No matter where we are, at work, at home, at play, we should al
ways keep safety in mind. In every step we take, every mile that we
drive, injury or death is lurking. Only the alert-minded person can
avoid mishaps. Let’s always keep wide awake. Remember, safety pays,
more ways than one.
Change Is A Sign Of Life
“My, how your children have changed! They’re growing up fast.”
Every parent has heard this remark many times. Maybe it gets tire
some, but they would be worried if no one ever said it about their
child.
Growth and change are signs of life. If some discomfort goes along
with growing up, that is part of the price we pay for being alive. If
you ever wonder why things don’t stay the same in your Company, re
member that a business, too, must improve in order to stay alive. ’
