Doing the same thing over and over and letting our guard down.

Something at work or at home has happened, not focusing on the job.

 

 Tired:

Worn out from lack of sleep or overexertion also slowing down our reaction time, and we make bad decisions.

Trying to operate or work with equipment we're not trained on, trying to take short cuts.

 

 Reckless:

Thinking safety rule are not important , rules don't apply to me, in too big of a rush.

Thinking no one else is affected by my actions.

 

Being careless:

Leaving things laying around, not caring about the hazards around us.
