The effectiveness of safety programs depends on their ability to motivate people to care about their health and safety. When people view this caring process as part of their whole life and not just part of their job, it becomes all the more effective. In fact, the same hazards exist outside of work and school as do within.

Help your students/employees to understand the importance of safety throughout all of their lives. Most of the nearly 100,000 accidental deaths and 19,000,000 disabling injuries that occur each year in the United States do not happen in the workplace. The injury is just as severe and the loss of resources and productivity is nevertheless just as great.
