I use this in my lab supervisor safety training:

The superior man, when resting in safety, does not forget that danger may 
come. When in a state of security he does not forget the possibility of 
ruin. When all is orderly, he does not forget that disorder may come. Thus 
his person is not endangered, and his States and all their clans are 
- Confucius    Chinese philosopher & reformer (551 BC - 479 BC)

[DCHAS-L] safety quotes
Sent by:
DCHAS-L Discussion List 

I am going to present an award to a graduate student who intervened 
following a chemical explosion in a lab and prevented serious burns to a 
colleague by his quick action, and also put out a fire in a fume hood.  Do 
you have any appropriate "safety" quotes I can put on a plaque?  IÕm 
looking for something more than the common ones Š IÕve already searched
