Critical Mass Safety Transformation—Winning Is Everything - by Tony M Jackson

In 1959, Vince Lombardi inherited the 1-10-1 Green Bay Packers of the National Football League. During the next eight years, Lombardi’s Packers dominated the league, winning six divisional championships, five league championships, and two Super Bowls. While Lombardi’s success and winning attitude is one of the greatest success stories for the ages, higher visibility safety solutions are writing a new success story in the safety industry. Lombardi’s winning attitude and overall results in the National Football League align with a vital highest ideal: Being Safe is No Accident.

Simply stated, new safety technologies are poised to completely eradicate deaths, injuries, and safety concerns of businesses and general consumers alike from dangerous highway environments. While this may appear on the surface an insurmountable task or lofty goal, it provides the basic premise of why higher visibility safety solutions exist. By serving in a capacity that makes a difference in exceeding challenges to sustaining a safe environment for businesses, personnel, and company assets, including consumers seeking better protection from accidents, these solutions are making a difference.

To say it a differently, yet even more profoundly, brighter, more efficient, and costs effective solutions enable consumers and businesses to “win,” feel confident in highway solutions, products, and strategies deployed, and secure dangerous environments that bring about the greatest return—focused loss prevention protection as a matter of habit. Why, you may ask are these safety solutions winning and succeeding at securing dangerous highway environments? Good question and it holds the highest ideals to be the absolute most effective solutions in the incident management industry. It could best be summed-up in the winning tradition of the late Vince Lombardi when he said:

“Winning is not a sometime thing; it’s an all the time thing. You don’t win once in a while; you don’t do things right once in a while; you do them right all the time. Winning is a habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.” He went on to say, “I believe in God, and I believe in human decency. But I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour—his greatest fulfillment to all he holds dear—is that moment when he has to work his heart out in a good cause and he’s exhausted on the field of battle—victorious.”

New safety innovations parallel that of Lombardi’s winning tradition—because they genuinely and proactively protect consumers and business assets from losses, deaths, or devastating injuries. To exist otherwise, would make the technologically advanced solutions simply another safety product—yet, by comparison of extensive findings, the safety solutions behind this revolutionary prospect of eradicating accidents is totally committed to winning at creating safer environments.

Taking pride in “nose-to-the-grind” safety innovations, technology developments, and exceeding new safety requirements, consumer and commercial safety success is a means to an end for lowering accidents in a number of high-profile industries. However, consumers and business decision-makers have the biggest part in the ultimate success of higher visibility safety solutions and advanced protection from accidents—the decision to determine what is in the best interest of being proactive instead of reactive to secure dangerous environments.

The questions remain to satisfy a quest to foil rising accidents includes:

1.  Does the desire to eradicating deaths and injuries exist as a high priority?

2.  Is safety just another necessary evil--forced upon businesses and consumers through regulatory authorities where meeting the bare minimum standards are considered a norm?

3.  Does creating a Zero Percent Accident environment really matter?

4.  Are current safety standards at the highest levels possible to sufficiently protect personnel, consumers, and company assets?

5.  Does a winning attitude toward accident avoidance exist or has luck taken the form of safety initiatives, simply if an accident occurs, it is happenstance?


With so many safety products on the market today and companies that are capable of selling traditional products, how does one choose the most cost effective solutions for unique dangerous environments? Consider these wise words from Power of Intention by Dr. Wayne Dyer when he said, “change the way you look at things, and things you look at change.” Hitting critical mass, which ideally could be one devastating accident, it’s already too late. Then the question become, what could have been done better to protect against accidents in dangerous highway environments? Well, the opportunity to be proactive is now because the technology exists that is making a real difference when it comes to full protection from deaths, injuries, and company assets.


As Lombardi did with his ’59 Packers, higher visibility safety solutions are engaging the safety battle and could be deployed when building a winning tradition that strives to make safety “an all-the-time-thing.” It’s about a direct connection to focus on a single targeted goal. When it comes to eradicating deaths, injuries, and protecting company assets, winning is everything and an expressed declaration to safety success. Lombardi provided the positive attitude that echo throughout the ages—winning is a habit, and winning is always the best safety solution. Feeling safe is one thing, but actually knowing it is much better because Being Safe is No Accident.
