Some people would say that the world has gone safety mad. Everywhere we turn there are massive warning signs or bright coloured tape marking ‘hazards’. Here are 10 safety facts that I bet you didn’t know... 
 

    • Every year, approximately 3 million employees are disabled at work. I must admit, when I was researching this post, this figure blew me away! That is 3 million people’s lives that are changed in an unthinkable way each year. While foreign countries with poor safety cultures account for a large portion of this statistic, it reinforces our duty to educate the third-world on necessary precautions and processes.
    • Fire kills more Americans each year than all natural disasters combined. Again, this shocked me! Fire in the home is totally preventable. If more people used fire alarms and were more sensible with cigarette butts, this statistic would be drastically reduced. Only last week in the UK, a family were all burned alive. Tragic.

    • Road traffic accidents costs countries around 4% of their Gross Natural Product each year! WOWSERS!!

    • For every 1km/h reduction in speed limit, there is a 2% reduction in the number of average crashes. Let’s stop for a moment to consider the increased likelihood of killing a pedestrian with increased speed. While most urban areas have a 30mph limit in the UK, the following diagram shows the huge increased chances of killing someone if you hit them any faster:
    • If you drive after being awake for 24 hours, your response times are impaired the equivalent of somebody just over the drink-driving limit. Furthermore, on only four hours sleep, a single beer will give a driver the same reaction time as a 6-pack of beer after a normal nights sleep. In reality, the drink driving limit does not measure what reaction times are safe. This purely measures a legal blood-alcohol level and does not take sleep and other factors into account. Just because you are under the legal limit, it does not necessarily mean that it’s safe to drive. Sleep, health, concentration, age, drugs etc. all impact reaction times.
