Feb. 2015 – BELLEVILLE, Ont. – Anyone who has performed the same job over and over knows that sometimes it’s difficult to remain focused on the task at hand. This emotional story helps to drive home the importance of recognizing complacency as a safety risk.


Complacency in the Workplace: Sandy’s Story is a heartfelt story told by the mother of someone who was killed on the job. Butch Evans never thought he was complacent about his safety. But we’ll never know what he was thinking during the safety meeting on lockout/tagout. We’ll never know because 30 minutes after the meeting, Butch was dead. Butch’s mother, Sandy, tells the tragic story of the loss of her son. She tells this story to help save others from the heartbreak she came to know the day Butch was killed on the job.
