Attention Workers: Are You Complacent? When a person is complacent, the best way to describe it would be that they feel secure while unaware of the potential danger that surrounds them. When we’re at work, it’s easy for this feeling to develop due to a perception that you work in a safe environment – especially if you’ve worked for years without any injuries. Regardless of how many years you’ve been on the job, it’s important that you don’t let your guard down. You should always follow safe work protocols and procedures that have been developed to ensure your work is executed safely. Additionally, it’s important to remember that work sites can change frequently, so be sure to take a few minutes and look around for any new hazards that may have formed without your knowledge.
