Tell me this… when you hang up your boots or your power suit or whatever for the final time what do you want to be remembered by? I look around my office walls that are covered with mementos and memories and my heart is filled with some wonderful events but there is one message I once received that sticks out in my mind. I had received an award and one old friend and acquaintance from the safety field sent his congratulations and he said that I should be happy with my accomplishments because somewhere one more worker could go home to his wife and family safely because of my work. As I look back on that now I believe and truly hope that his remark was based on fact. For sixty five years now I have worked in some way on worker safety. It is an attitude that needs renewal in some way every day. I’m getting more conscious of my own safety needs. A simple thing like walking out to my car requires vigilance because it is so easy to trip and fall when your knee replacements are hurting and you just can’t leap over tall buildings like you used to with ease. I’m sure that I will be looking out for others safety for the rest of my life because it is just a part of who I am. It is kind of rewarding to realize that you did make a difference, even if it was in a small way.
