Why do some companies succeed in safety and other's do not?
Is it due to the high tech brand new equipment they bought?
Could it be they are aliens from a planet that is strange?
Or is it something else that brings about their change?
Exec's of these companies upon hearing our ponder
Would raise up their arm and point over yonder
To an object not far which hangs high up on the wall
Where eyes meet eyes and dreams rise and fall
The answer to your question must be thrown back as a query
To the intentions you have which make your employees leery
Is it to save money or face and look good for the boss?
Or are you truly concerned with the potential for loss?
Of employees that work hard and loyal to the bone
as well those quiet ones that just wish to be alone
Workers that are new, Workers with a clue
Workers that old, And workers with a cold
Follow leaders who care and have passion
Not those who follow the trends and hot fashions
The answer you seek is not a needle in the hay
The answer you seek you see everyday
Beneath the creased and pressed tan docker pants
Stands a person who hears "can" and never the "cant's"
Have noble intentions and care for your staff
Smile and be jolly and share an occasional laugh
For those that do, the answer becomes clear
It's the reflection off the object, and your face will appear
It begins with you and the commitment you bring
and the rewards of safety will be no fleeting thing
From ratios to profits, the gains you will see
Will not compare to your employee's joyful glee
To walk in their home without a twist, break, or strain
