 What Is an Accident?

 An unexpected event, typically sudden in nature, an unplanned, unwanted, but controllable event which disrupts the work process and causes injury to people.

Most people would agree that an accident is unplanned and unwanted. 

The idea that an accident is controllable might be a new concept. 

An accident stops the normal course of events and causes property damage or personal injury, minor or serious, and occasionally results in a fatality.

Accidents can occur anywhere, including in the home, during transportation, in the hospital, on the sports field, or in the workplace.

With appropriate safety precautions and awareness of one’s actions and environment, many accidents can be avoided or prevented.
