What is complacency and how does it affect work sites?
Complacency can be the most dangerous mindset that results in an injury or accident. When you begin to work on “auto-pilot” mode, and stop paying attention to what you are doing, that can lead to taking short cuts and taking risks.

When working on routine, repetitive tasks, or driving to familiar sites, you can become very comfortable and you go on “auto-pilot.” All too often you do not realize how complacent you have become until you have a near miss or close call. Such events tend to jump start hearts and refocus proper attention, at least for a little while, to the importance of tasks at hand. Complacency causes a sense of numbness to hazards.

Complacency can be defined as self-satisfaction, especially when accompanied by unawareness of actual dangers or deficiencies. Complacency is extremely dangerous in the workplace. You get so used to things being done the same way that you do not always look at the hazards in your surroundings. You may also underestimate the risk of tasks that you perform regularly or fail to notice a change in your environment when you become complacent in your daily routines. Most incidents are caused by unsafe acts. Companies and employees work hard to create a safe workplace and eliminate unsafe acts.
