This video dramatically tells the story of an employee who failed to speak up when witnessing an unsafe act. By choosing to look the other way, he allowed the needless death of a co-worker to occur. Based on the popular safety poem by Don Merrell, this program shows how speaking up about unsafe acts can save lives and help develop a positive safety culture.

They will be convinced that speaking up about unsafe acts is critical in the prevention of workplace injuries. Some of the other safety concerns addressed in the program include supervisors, rushing, habits, shift work and intimidation.
Like its predecessor "I Chose To Look The Other Way," this video is based on a popular poem by Don Merrell and brings its powerful safety message to life through the combination of video and poetry.
