#SafetyCHAMP- Accident Prevention

If human decision is the number one cause of accidents, then people’s attitudes play a vital role in preventing injuries. Accident prevention begins with the driver’s attitude. Studies show there are five attitudes attributing to most injuries. They are:
• Anti-authority
• Impulsivity
• Invulnerability
• Macho
• Resignation
Reviewing each one of these attitudes, it’s safe to say we have all experienced at least one at work, at home, or while driving. Normally when we experience one or more of these attitudes, we have turned a simple task into a dangerous situation thereby increasing the chances of an injury. Accidents do not just happen; they are caused. Most accidents happen as a result of an unsafe or poor attitude. Research shows bad driving attitudes often cause unsafe acts, which are the cause of most accidents.
