Why SafetyQuo?

Welcome to SafetyQuo.com – a blog for safety thinkers.

Status Quo    (noun)      The existing state or condition . . .

Quo                 (latin)       Where . . .

To make genuine improvements and to save lives, we need to challenge the status quo in safety – hence challenging the SafetyQuo.

Quo derives from the Latin for ‘where’, so SafetyQuo could also be interpreted as Where is safety going? – a challenging proposition.

The safety profession continues to do things in the same old way it always has. This site aims to look at things from a different perspective, challenge some entrenched ideas and prompt more critical thinking.
