In my four years of employment with the CBJ, there has never been more emphasis on making improvements. Management wants employees to step up as leaders. A cultural change has occurred for many departments and continues for many more. In this safety minute, my wish is to plant in your minds a sense of ownership. One barrier to ownership that stands in the way is blame.

I challenge you take on this barrier by committing your head, heart, and hands to fix the safety issues rather than affix blame to someone or something else. This is your City. You make it function safely.   The moment you start choosing to make things safe, is the moment you begin to remove the blame barrier.
