I’ll add this one to the list:
“A Recordable is an accident where the victim lives to write it down”
accident is a
near miss that hit its target."
"An accident is 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 occurred.]

“’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 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? I’m looking for something more than the common ones – I’ve already searched Google.
