Safety Involves Everyone On The Job, Including The Photographer | Mining Industrial Photographer James Hodgins

When I am on a job site the first thing on my mind is safety.   I have to be just as safe as everyone else that works there.  Not only do I have safety on my mind while creating the images (ensuring everyone has proper PPE for the location and job) but I also have to be safe as well.  My wife is counting on my coming home, I like my health the way it is, and at the present moment I have s 100% safety record which I plan to uphold as long as my career will allow it.  Also know your surrounds, who is in it, what obstacles there are and what safety precautions need to take place for a successful day on the job.  I deal with a lot of moving vehicles on site, including the forklift.  This thing can zip in and out of everywhere and turn on a dime.  I have met some skilled operators in my time, and unfortunately I have witnessed some that are not so skilled.  Here is a great blog post for “Tips On Operating A Forklift Safely”
