MOTELS….. Safe 6……. No connection with the “keep the lights on” folks.  Our MOTELS is an acronym, not a hotel chain.  Each letter represents a category of potentially dangerous activities or conditions.  By now you can recite the Safe 6 and know that the first step is “Recognize all the Dangers.”  Everything associated with the rest of Safe 6 relies on an understanding of those dangers.

While we believe what The Safely Working Project is promoting is useful to all employers and safety professionals, our efforts are directed at those small businesses that can’t afford or don’t have a safety professional to facilitate workplace safety.

The Safely Working Project is an approach to workplace safety that is driven by employees and supervisors.  This is fundamentally different from the traditional Safety Program where an EHS Professional manages workplace safety.  So, instead of top down safety, Safely Working™ endeavors to succeed from the ground up. “We’re turning safety upside down.”
