I like this one.
“It’s better to be careful 100 times, than to be killed once.” Mark T wain
"An accident i
near miss that hit its target."
"An accident i s a near miss that hit its target."
[AXIOM: All accidents announce their impending arrival; the announcements are called "near misses". So while the forthcoming accident in its Near-Miss-Stage, eliminate the causes of the near miss that has occurr ed.]

“’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 ones – I’ve already searched Google.
