There are generally 3 levels when trying to prevent and control accidents. Although you can not totally control everything, there are ways you can minimize risk. Minimizing the risk and the rate of occurrence are the biggest steps in accident control. The first step is doing actions that can help prevent the accident. The second level are actions that can help minimize the impact if the accident does happen. And lastly, how do you respond in the accident aftermath.
Actions that can help prevent the accident
You see this everyday in the different traffic implementations. From speed limits, stop signs, and other rules you have to follow. The same concept can be done in your home. You instill different rules at home. Examples are no jumping on the bed or no skateboarding inside the home or in busy streets, these are done to avoid the accident from happening. At work, the same can be done. Rules like no using of company network for personal activities. This is done to prevent cyber security threats.
Actions that can help minimize the impact
Following up on the actions mentioned earlier, we still take steps to ensure the safety of people. As mentioned, nothing is totally controlled, so you need to take extra precaution. This is why we have safety features in our cars like seatbelts and airbags. In the event of a collision, you try and minimize the effect on your body.
The same is done at home. For our skateboarding example, you require them to wear protective gear like helmets and knee pads. At work, you install firewalls and antivirus programs. All of these are done to minimize if such a threat does occur.
Actions to respond in the accident aftermath
These are the actions we do in response to the accident happening. We post emergency numbers at our home for our loved ones to call in case of an emergency.
