Safety First Warning Sign
The concept of safety can be broadly defined as the "control of hazards to achieve an acceptable level of risk".
However, this definition doesn't quite encompass everything there is to say about the term, and the word "safety" can be used in many contexts.
It can be used to describe the protection of people or possessions, and involves aspects of home life, public life, transportation, the workplace, and other areas within a society.

Home safety can refer to various things but is often used interchangeably with the word "security".
However, home security usually refers to whether or not the home is resistant to break-ins and burglaries, while home safety can also refer to a number of issues like baby proofing, fire safety, radon, carbon monoxide, and toxic mold.
Issues of public safety include crimes and misdemeanors, as well as injuries and other emergency situations.
Public safety officials seek to minimize and respond to criminal behavior quickly and also prevent and attend to injuries and emergencies.
Examples of public safety officials include police and security officers, firefighters, and emergency medical technicians.
There are several organizations that have been designated to set forth and regulate public codes and standards of safety in various aspects of society.
Founded in 1913, the National Safety Council strives to save lives by preventing injuries and death
at work, at home, in communities, and on the road.
The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) oversees many different industries
in the United States and reviews and adopts volunteer recommended safety standards.
Other regulatory agencies dealing with issues of safety in the United States include
the Food and Drug Administration,
the Consumer Product Safety Commission,
and the Environmental Protection Agency.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)
is responsible for regulating safety in the workplace through programs to prevent illness and injury.
Safety is important for any society but is something that is not achieved automatically.
A wide variety of organizations and government policies work together to this end and are necessary to set safety standards in many industries
for a well-functioning society and a better quality of life for all of us.
