8/28/2012 - SHAW AIR FORCE BASE, S.C. -- This Labor Day, as we celebrate the traditional "end of summer", be sure to include safety in all of your activities. When driving, wear your seat belt; limit your cell phone use to hands free mode only, and never text and drive. If operating a motorcycle, be vigilant and wear all of your personal protective equipment.
When boating, always wear your personal flotation device and don't drink alcohol if you are at the controls. Never swim alone.
Apply risk management techniques to all of your activities: identify the hazard, assess the risk, and take actions to mitigate or eliminate the risk. A good real-time risk decision can make all the difference.
Be a good wingman by watching out for your fellow airmen as you celebrate. The 20th FW Safety Office wishes you and your family a safe and enjoyable Labor Day weekend!
