Situational Awareness

Before doing any task, everyone should ask the following 4 Q’s or 4 simple Questions to ensure the task will be completed in a safe manner.

  1. What am I about to do?
  2. What do I need to do this job and how will I do it safely.
  3. How could I get hurt?
  4. What am I going to do to prevent injury?

Often incidents occur in the workplace and at home because someone did not have situational awareness and the 4 Q’s will help ensure you are mindful of what is going on.
