Are you playing it safe — and losing?

from CSFA

We talk a lot about safety in the fire service. Remember when the term "culture of safety" first started getting used? There was a lot of resistance at first, but slowly we started to realize safety wasn't a four-letter word.

Staying safe is a good thing when we're talking about avoiding physical injury or exposure to carcinogens. But playing it too safe can backfire on us. A fear of taking risks can make us conformists. We go along with the crowd, hesitant to try new things or do the same things differently. Even when we recognize the opportunity for improvement or growth, we talk ourselves out of it, afraid of failure or of disapproval. more
