The 8th and final chapter in the safety manual is safety awareness. While being aware of your surroundings is key to being safe this chapter more specifically focuses on safety requirements of FIRST. If you attend these meetings regularly and somehow find yourself unaware of the FIRST safety manual I complement you on how oblivious you must be to somehow avoid me forcing these safety talks down your throat. Finally, FIRST mandates that knowing about the safety award is also part of safety awareness. The I underwriters laboratory safety award that we will win celebrates safety beyond basic understanding. I encourage all of you to use these safety talks to try to not mimic these word for word but use your own creative ways to make you and others safe.
