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.
