Near Miss W.A.T.C.H. Card: Derrick Washington


By: Taylor Guidry

Derrick Washington recently submitted a near miss W.A.T.C.H. card and was praised for observing a potential risk factor.

While walking to his work area, Derrick had to cross over temporary stairs. As he passed over the stairs, he noticed a step was not secure in that it was just laying on the bars. Knowing that this could potentially result in injury, Derrick stopped to secure the step before anyone made contact. The employee noticed Derrick's initiative to solve the problem before leaving the work area and thanked him for a job well done.

Derrick's reaction in this situation serves as a great reminder to us all to pay attention to our surroundings. Derrick did exactly as he should have, and the end result paid off for him. Thank you, Derrick!
