Hurt at Work – the woke version

Title: “Injured on the Job”


  1. Terry – A conscientious worker who values workplace safety and respects the rights of others.
  2. Joe – A compassionate employer who prioritizes employee well-being and ensures a safe work environment.

[Scene opens in an office setting. Terry is on the phone with Joe, his employer.]

Terry: Hey, Joe, it’s Terry. I wanted to talk to you about something that happened at work today.

Joe: Hey Terry, sure thing. What’s going on?

Terry: Well, I was on the job, you know, doing my thing, and I had a bit of an accident. I slipped and fell, twisted my ankle pretty bad.

Joe: Oh no, Terry! Are you okay? Do you need medical attention?

Terry: Yeah, I think I’ll be okay. I just need to ice it and rest for a bit. But Joe, I’ve been thinking. This isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Maybe we need to take a closer look at our safety protocols and make sure everyone’s properly trained.

Joe: You’re absolutely right, Terry. Your well-being and that of our entire team is paramount. Let’s schedule a meeting to review our safety procedures and see where we can make improvements.

Terry: That sounds great, Joe. And hey, while we’re at it, maybe we can also discuss implementing a system for reporting hazards and near misses so we can address issues before they escalate.

Joe: I love that idea, Terry. It’s crucial that everyone feels empowered to speak up about safety concerns. Your input is invaluable, and I appreciate you bringing this to my attention.

Terry: Thanks, Joe. I’m just glad we’re on the same page about this. Let’s work together to create a safer and more inclusive workplace for everyone.

[They end the call, both feeling optimistic about the positive changes they can make together.]
