Try this one:

"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.]

dangerous circumstances."  Stanley Baldwin (Earl Baldwin of Bewdley)

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
