Dave Johnson's January issue editorial on "Me and my footprint;" taking personal responsibility for sustainable behaviors and lifestyle, inspired this log of sustainable actions taken by ISHN editorial advisor Keith Tait:
I agree with the premise that $$ only drives algorithmic (my word) tasks. Safety is not algorithmic... it is heuristic. We are asking for strategies and decisions, not just following directions, to get real results.
Safety procedures, safety talks, signs and other instructions direct workers. But attempting to identify all behaviors needed to keep employees safe fail in the midst of a changing work environment of aging equipment, cost-cutting, and changes in processes and people.
