Take a Cab at work

Weird as it might seem but often after a few days away from work most tend to forget the most miniscule hazards on the way to it. It is thus best to hire a cab on the first day back just to remind yourself of the pitfalls of the road taken by you. This helps you to take notice of the new problems on the road, as well.

If this is not enough here are a few fail-safe steps to prevent injury on your first day back –

  • A complete inspection of your tools that you would be using that day
  • Check-in and around the area of your work
  • Ensure that all the safety measures that need to be taken are present in and around you.
  • Keep a lookout for any hazard that may befall on your co-workers. Most may negate their safety but never fail to keep safeguard their co-workers.
  • Stop work altogether if you feel that you are not up or it that day.
  • Go over what you need to do that day on the job to keep safe.
  • Take all the time you need to settle down at work. Do not rush as it would create more problems for you than benefits.

Why Safety is Important after Long Weekend?

It may seem weird but the probability of an injury is highly increased after a few days break for work. This is primarily because you have gotten used to a relaxed lifestyle and on the very first day of work are having trouble breaking into work mode. This makes way for the probability of getting hurt on a Monday all the more real.


It does not matter if you have been off work for a weekend, a week or a single day prepping yourself back into the working mentality is extremely important. This poses a greater problem than you may think of. It is because having a good time often erases the safety habits that you have developed over the years.

Why first day back at work after holiday dangerous?

While official researchers often claim that you are more susceptible to injury on your first day back at work but no one knows why! But it is not a mystery. A few days of respite make you lax that makes it easy for you to have an accident on the first day of work. It is not as easy as you may think it is but neither is it very difficult. Here are a few reasons as to why –

1.) Sadness


Nobody likes to work and hence the beginning of the workweek is not ideal for most. Even the best workers are plagued with lower morale as well as lower energy levels that make them careless at work and more prone to injury. While it would certainly be hard but getting over the fact that you are no longer off-duty is ideal.

2.) Stress 


Home stress can create anxiety about going back to work after vacation. If you have to face any trouble over the weekend at your home then you would certainly be disturbed at work. This may lead you to become all the more distracted and thus, prone to be injured.

3.) Frenzied

The first day that you attend work after a break is certainly difficult but to come back to work on the first day that your job opens after a while is bound to be all the more hectic. At this time the slightest bit of carelessness would lead you to hospice.


It is more than okay to take the much-deserved rest, if and when you need it. But by not being careful after your return to work, you may create more problems for yourself than you wish to face. It may also happen that you lose not only your job but also your life by not being careful.

By implementing the back to work safety message you would be able to get back to your work mode all the more easily and with much more élan than you ever thought was possible.
