We are all aware of accidents, what they are, and how harmful they can be. A good accident prevention definition is a reference to the actions people may take to try and stop accidents from occurring. These could relate to steps taken by individuals or groups, either in the workplace, or on the roads, or indeed at home.
We’ll never be able to prevent all accidents from happening. However, the more we can do to prevent them, the fewer people will be affected. This could mean doing things that make us safer, as well as those around us.
An accident prevention definition in the workplace
We can all benefit from a strong accident prevention process at work. Fortunately, most of us already do benefit from this. Health and safety laws have made it necessary for employers to take great care in preventing as many accidents as they can. By identifying risk factors and removing them, accidents are far less common today than they were in the past.
Yet we also have a responsibility to be as careful as we can be regarding our own safety and that of others. If you are driving, for example, you must follow all the rules of the road. You should drive at a safe speed below the speed limit, and make sure you stay a safe distance from all other road users. Additionally, you should stay alert and make sure you are not distracted from the road ahead of you.
