Risks. They’re not just in the workplace—they’re everywhere.
Cutting your food at dinner, driving to the store to get milk, walking through puddles on the floor from your shower, and navigating around a dog toy at 2 a.m. have all caused someone varying degrees of pain at some point. The presence of risk is what makes these activities hazards. Technically speaking, the term risk is a mathematical way to measure potential loss, based on how frequently we come in contact with a hazard, how likely the potential loss is to happen, and, if it occurred, the possible severity of the loss. Personally, I’ve found that never leaving bed in the first place significantly decreases the likelihood of risk in my life. Unfortunately, life requires me to roll out of bed and face life’s many risks– so how do I and how can you, manage that?
