“If you can’t explain it to a six year old, you don’t understand it yourself.” – Albert Einstein.

What is your working definition of “safety”? We use it all the time so are we cler on what it means to us?

“If you can’t explain it to a six year old, you don’t understand it yourself.” – Albert Einstein.

In this famous quote Albert illustrates that was should know what we mean before we try to explain it to others. We want a “Safety” Culture or “Safe Work”. How do we explain the terms “Safe & Safety” to ourselves and others?

Asking safety practitioners and professionals on Linkedin this question is getting some pretty diverse answers. How can we possibly get others to understand the creation of safety cultures if we can’t agree ourselves.
