Bob Gates has safety on his mind, all the time
It doesn’t matter if they’ll be digging dirt, pouring concrete or welding steel, Bob Gates wants the workers building our new hospital to start off doing the same job.
Unrolling some Scotch tape.
Gates wants them to find a photo of someone or something they love and to tape that picture inside the front of their hard hat.
“It could be a spouse, child, grandchild, pet, motorcycle, boat, vacation spot or winning lottery ticket – whatever’s important to you,” says Gates. “Every day, when you put on your hard hat, that picture goes in front of your eyes.
“It’s a constant reminder of why you want to work safe.”
