    ​At my company, we perform a quick safety moment before every meeting.  I would like to share my personal safety moment with the AIChE community especially since there are a lot of people out there that might be able to related to it if you have ever mowed a lawn.....or watched someone mow a lawn.

    I have been sharing this story for years.

    Please feel free to pass it along.  There is no copyright!

    Have a safe day,

    If you want a more comprehensive view, the ASM Consortium keeps a global list of incidents on its public web site ( http://www.asmconsortium.net ) . This list is gathered periodically from openly reported press reports.


    In general reporting from the USA, Canada, and Western Europe is quite reliable. Asia is improving but there is still some censorship, and reporting from Africa and the Middle East is inadequate.


    In all there is a major incident (one in which people are killed or seriously injured) every three days. This is not an enviable record.
