♦♦♦     HOME SAFETY     ♦♦♦



95% of employees do not take safety home and / or take safety at home seriously. This includes road safety.


  • Employees’ attitude towards safety is a “consequence” attitude, i.e.
    I  ‘GOTO’  instead of  I  ‘WANTO’  do safety – because I believe it is the right thing to do.
  • Employees see safety as an issue that concerns them only when at work. Once they leave the factory / mine gate, different safety standards kick in.
  • Companies spend virtually no money and effort on home safety, i.e. % of safety budget spent directly on improving safety outside the gate = ZERO.
  • We – the employer and employees – don’t have time and / or money, and / or …    the list goes on and on.

What I want to know is: What are your thoughts on this subject?


  1. How important is home safety / take home safety in your company’s overall safety strategy? (Rate as Critical / Very Important / Important / Unimportant / Irrelevant)
  2. What percentage of your company’s safety budget is spent directly on home safety / taking safety home, which includes road safety in general (but not inside company premises)?
  3. What products or hand-outs is / has your company been giving all its employees in order to improve their home safety / take home safety?
