Dealing with Workplace Distractions
In many work situations, distractions and interruptions are unavoidable. Some distractions can even lead to workplace injuries. However, many of these incidences can be controlled or prevented. Regardless of the distraction, your first priority should be to keep your mind and your focus on your safety and the safety of others, and then focus on the task at hand.
