Ask Yourself, “Am I Being Complacent?” If we stop for a minute and just think about a time where we may have been complacent, I bet we all can think of at least one example. Complacency can happen to any of us – even to those of us who are very experienced! When you complete an activity for a long period of time (repetitive tasks) without injury, you can let your guard down because you don’t perceive any danger associated with your work. In fact, you may even feel safe taking a shortcut, or becoming a little too relaxed while on the job. Both of these behaviours can easily put you at risk of injury. Please keep focused on the safe execution of your work, and adhere to all safe work practices and procedures which have been put in place to protect you.
