From my experience (as a craftsman in heavy industry and having an associate degree in safety), it is not my awareness and knowledge of safety that is critical.
It's that other fucking moron I'm working with that I'm concerned about.

I agree, 9 X out of 10 its the other person, and of course we have to look out for them no matter what the cost. I recently noticed a high speed lathe operator acting strangely. She was looking at the machine like it should be running, of course it should have been only she "forgot" how to start it. When she asked me I noticed she was drunk! how'd she get drunk so fast, well she kept going out to "smoke". I had no choice but to alert HR she really could have killed herself and considering she worked alone at her station it was for her own good. I felt good about what I did but bad for her because she was transported to get a BAC and then terminated after the results came back.
