Let’s be more cautious about always over-prioritizing Safety above everything else.

Using the phrase “Safety First” as a default teases us to not engage in the critical conversations revolving around risk assessment, risk mitigation, and risk acceptance. It feeds risk aversion and zero defects mentality. It can create mindless procedural automation. And, it can also create the exact hesitation that leads to increased danger or threat. I like to tell my loved ones to “Be Smart” not “Be Safe”. I feel it implies much more and automatically includes the elements of safety consciousness.

LESSONS: Without Risk, there can be no Reward. Appropriate Risk Being smart includes the elements of reasonable risk and safety.
