Introduction to Safety aspects
Before you get know about the safety you will need to know from which you are going to safe?
So this derives an unsafe condition. So what is that unsafe condition?
This is called a "Hazard"
What is a Hazard?
So we will refer some of definitions.
1. A hazard is a situation which poses a level of threat to life, health, property or environment. Most hazards are dormant or potential, with only a theoretical risk of harm, however, once a hazard becomes 'active', it can create an emergency situation.
2. A biological, chemical, or physical agent that is reasonably likely to cause illness or injury in the absence of its control. (More related to HACCP Definitions by FDA)
3. A biological, chemical or physical agent in, or condition of, food with the potential to cause an adverse health effect. (More related to HACCP - FDA Definition)
4. Hazards have the potential to cause disasters. Hazards cause disasters only when they meet with vulnerable people: when affecting 1. human life, 2. property, 3. human activities. (More closer to Disaster Management Perspective)
So shall we define safety!!!
1. The condition of being safe; freedom from danger, risk, or injury.
2. A device designed to prevent accidents, as a lock on a firearm preventing accidental firing.
3.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.
