In life, we can at many times be defined by the choices we make, both good and bad. As human beings, we are not perfect and should not try to be. We should, however, try to consistently do the right thing. When it comes to safety, doing the right thing at work while someone is watching is easy. When not at work, at a different business or when no one is enforcing safe work practices, our free will can set in. For the past few years, at CMC Steel Arizona’s fiscal midpoint, a decision was made to carry out a safety “Reality Check Meeting.” The idea was to look beyond the incident rate (IR) safety metric to truly see if work was being completed safely or not.
