Sir Isaac Newton told us why

An apple falls down from the sky,
And from this fact, it’s very plain,
All other objects do the same.

A brick, a bolt, a bar, a cup
Invariably fall down, not up,
And every common working tool
Is governed by the self-same rule.
So when you handle tools up there,
Let your watchword be “Take Care “.

If at work you drop a spanner,
It travels in a downward manner.
At work, a fifth of accidents or more
Iillustrate old Newton’s law,
But one thing he forgot to add,
The damage won’t be half as bad
If you are wearing proper clothes,
Especially on your head and toes.

These hats and shoes are there to save
The wearer from an early grave.
So best feet forward and take care
About the kind of shoes you wear,
It’s better to be sure than dead,
So get a hat and keep your head.

Don’t think to go without is brave;
The effects of gravity can be grave….

Safety helmet ✔️

Steel Toe Boots ✔️

Hi-viz jacket ✔️

Welding goggles ✔️

H&S in the workplace ✔️

..and that's the Burnley way"

I could still recite that from memory as well as:
"Lisp-smak'n, thirst quench'n, ace tast'n. motivat'n, good buzz'n, cool talk'n, hard walk'n, fast liv'n, ever give'n, cool fizz'n .............
