English term or phrase:to play heads up ball
Aus einem Arbeitsheft zum Thema Arbeitssicherheit:
A forklift driver at a packaging company started making mental notes about which pedestrians in the plant always made eye contact before moving between work stations. After a while he knew who had good habits and who didn't. Unfortunately, he also realized that he wouldn't always know who it was until the last second, so he decided to drive as if all the pedestrians had bad habits in terms of eyes on task and "playing heads up ball".
