Why You Need to Reassess Your Workplace Safety Procedures

When I was growing up, my dad would tell cautionary tales of ways people had been injured by doing an everyday activity around the house.

The NRA will remind you of it every chance they get no matter whether we are talking about a gun which went off accidentally, or on purpose, or on whatever, it’s always the person, not the gun.
