Our society values safety and health, and really, what is more important? Safety is defined on Wikipedia as:
Safety is the state of being "safe" (from French sauf), the condition of being protected against physical, social, spiritual, financial, political, emotional, occupational, psychological, educational or other types or consequences of failure, damage, error, accidents, harm or any other event which could be considered non-desirable. This can take the form of being protected from the event or from exposure to something that causes health or economical losses. It can include protection of people or of possessions.
That is a broad definition. We see our societal values in health and safety in the recent discussions over national healthcare reform. We all believe our citizens deserve the best healthcare, and no one should be left behind.
Our law firm is usually hired after someone has already been injured. In those instances, had safety precautions been taken BEFORE the injury occurred, it is likely that the injury would have been prevented. Unfortunately, that is not the case once we get involved.
For this reason, our firm and InjuryBoard promote safe practices. We try to educate the public on how to be safe. Whether you are driving a car or working in a plant, there are steps you can take to be safe and lessen the risk of injury and harm.
In this regard, we have developed a Safety Shop where you can search for items to help you and your family stay safe. The domain is www.USSafetyShop.com. We plan on developing this site further to include many more products which you can review and purchase to help prevent harm to you and your family. Let us know what you think, and on this Labor Day holiday, BE SAFE!!
