Description:

Safety is paramount in the pursuit of excellence from the training ground to the fireground. In a world of acronyms, where even those are hard to remember what the letters stand for, the VIPER acronym will assist all members of an organization in keeping safety first by using psychological senses to maintain situational awareness and cognizance. Enhanced safety performance senses include Vigilance, Intuition, Preparation, Enthusiasm/Engagement, and Resilience. It is essential to remember that EVERYONE is a safety officer whether formally or informally. Adding these key axioms to your safety toolbox will ensure an extra layer of risk management. If it's predictable, it's preventable!
