FAQ: Frequently Asked Questions. Okay, so you can look up the common meanings of words in a dictionary. But that doesn’t really explain what those technical terms really mean, does it? Here’s what I think, based on 20+ years of experience of both doing and teaching.

FAQ: Safety

‘Why Safety?’ Questions

how safety is important, why safety is important, why safety matters, safety is key, what safety means to me.

The ILO estimates that some 2.3 million women and men around the world succumb to work-related accidents or diseases every year; this corresponds to over 6000 deaths every single day. Worldwide, there are around 340 million occupational accidents and 160 million victims of work-related illnesses annually. 

International Labour Organisation, UN, 12 Dec 2020

Safety is important because we need to protect people from physical and psychological harm. It’s the right thing to do. In most countries, it is also the law, and there may be severe penalties for those who cause harm to others, or even just for exposing them to certain risks. I can tell you that just being investigated for a safety breach is a highly disruptive and unpleasant experience – I’ve seen it happen. Accidents are also VERY expensive.

However, I don’t like trying to frighten people into complying with the law. It leads to defensive and poor decision making and it saps people’s confidence. That’s not what I want to happen. I prefer to point out that building safety into the earliest stages of a project is much cheaper and more effective than trying to add it later.
