Correct deficiencies on the spot
"Any time we see something wrong and don’t correct it, we lose some of the professionalism that earns our Sailors' respect and confidence. Each time we look the other way and ignore a minor deficiency because we’re in a hurry or it’s not that important, it becomes easier to overlook other things. We tend to let more slide until, one day, we overlook something that causes an accident. With luck, it only costs damaged equipment. All too often the price is an injured or dead Sailor."
