Terry, who has been an employee in your department for about six months, can be careless about safety. He hasn't been involved in any serious accidents, but he's had many near misses. Your supervisor asked you to introduce a new employee, Susan, to the department and to help with her training. Terry overheard and offered to show Susan the safety procedures. Your supervisor thought that would be a great idea. What should you do?

Practice answering the following question from Section 1 of the Walmart Retail Pre-Employment Assessment:

    Tell your supervisor that Terry has had many near misses and not much experience.
