“Nobody moves and nobody gets hurt.” –cliché
This phrase means more to me now than any old western or hold-up movie since starting work in the railroad industry. I orignally heard someone say it during my training. What I thought was just a humorous quote, truly meant more as my career went on.
SAFETY, SAFETY, SAFETY.
We work in an unforgiving environment. From the engines to the box cars, from the hot blistering sun to the freezing cold winter nights, from trying to read our lists to using the radio to speak with crews- there is so much to remember. It all comes down to working safely. We rely on each other at work. Working 8-12 hour shifts, we all want to go home at the end of the day to our families and friends. If you haven’t been onto the tracks before- stop and assess the situation. If you don’t understand what is being requested of you- ask again. Don’t make a move if safety is in question.
“Nobody moves and nobody gets hurt.”
