Guys, As it applies to you, What do you think the Number 1, principle of Workplace Safety is?. For me the Number 1 thing would be:
Think about what you are to do and how will this affect you and those around you. (With respect to loss of supply, noise, your own safety while you are doing the job,machines re-starting once the supply is re-instated)
I don't do much hot work,but am frequently on tall ladders or scaffolds(as most of us are). The thing that helps me the most is being deliberate and taking things one step at a time. Keeping the walkboard(s) clean/uncluttered.
Taking time to be sure that your ladder/scaffolding is set up properly and braced correctly.

Guys, There are some really good comments here, But, we aren't talking Rocket Science, here. Basically all that Work-place Safety requires is that everyone uses the brains that they were given when they were born. I think that lack of knowledge+ lack of information on a Construction site, is a real downfall to Apprentices.
