â€œTenacity is the ability to hang on when letting go appears most attractive â€“ Anonymousâ€
When we think of being tenacious, we seem to conjure up images of a career minded person striving for perfection in an aggressive manner. This isnâ€™t always the case, being tenacious can and probably does form part of your day to day activities, particularly when it comes to Health and Safety.
Maybe you have highlighted a problem and been told â€˜We will deal with that laterâ€™. Or our favourite (excuse the sarcasm) â€˜We donâ€™t have any money left in the budget this month to tackle that issueâ€™. If you have highlighted a Health and Safety concern within your workplace but have been pushed to one side, donâ€™t stop there!
Put your concerns in writing and make your concerns known to more senior management. â€˜Accidentsâ€™ donâ€™t care about timings or what money is or isnâ€™t there. When they happen, they happen due to negligence, ignorance and lack of understanding.
