Hi all! My name is Dave Koeneke and I am the executive director of the Oklahoma Safety Council. Our council is a non-profit and our primary responsibility is to be a safety resource to companies throughout Oklahoma. Secondly, we are a resource to the public and we offer courses such as defensive driving, first aid and CPR to all that want to attend.
This is my first time to author a blog here and I am excited about the opportunity. There are many things that I would like to share with others about safety at work and at home. There is typically a bleed-over of our habits to work safely. How safely we perform our jobs at work will shape our beliefs for being safe at home and at play as well.
I might introduce a picture or two here and there in the future to show you situations or equipment that might help in safety education for you. I hope we have some fun here too, as safety seems like it can be a dry subject. It does pay to work and play safely because we want to be healthy and keep all of our fingers, toes and limbs in tact. Lord knows we all want to be able to play with our kids, grand kids and just be able to walk upright and enjoy life.
We have to learn to make safety a priority and a habit. If we do this second nature then our chances of being hurt go down considerably and our lives move along a whole lot better. So, I’ll hit on some safety subjects on a regular basis and if you have anything you want to hear about or comment on please fire away!
