    Really liked this months uplift message.

    Smiling is contagious, it helps make the construction job site more positive. I work with men & women who all work away from home. That brings a certain level of stress on people. The people on the construction job site can become their de facto family.
    Smiling helps bring down the barriers that often go up when a work place accident happens. We never know what may be going on in that persons life. A genuine smile lets them know that some people actually care.

    “Be kind to one another” It fits with my “Be your brothers keeper” message on the job. It seems to be very successful.

    I hope all is well. Please say hi to our CAPS pals

    Cheers
    Craig

      Hi there Craig, Safety Guy,

      Thank you, for your acknowledging comments. Perhaps I am getting a little more opinionated and feisty in my older age!

      I appreciate your additional perspective on the power of a smile on construction sites, of all places. Not just heads down but ‘heads up’ now and then with a smile of reassurance and care.

      I am glad that more than Ellen DeGeneres and EMDR trainer, Sue Genest are using the phrase “Be kind to one another.” Of course ‘brother’s (& sister’s) keeper’ is another good reminder to support one another. As social psychologists know we, humans are hard wired for connection and the acknowledgment it can bring.

      We miss you at CAPS!

      Hugs, Patricia
