“’Safety first’ does not mean a smug self-satisfaction with everything as it is. It is a warning to all persons who are going to cross a road in dangerous circumstances.” Stanley Baldwin (Earl Baldwin of Bewdley) 1867-1947 Source: The Times May 21 1929

I am going to present an award to a graduate student w ho intervened following a chemical explosion in a lab and prevented serious bu rns 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 p ut on a plaque? I’m looking for something more than the common one s – I’ve already searched Google.
