Accidents happen and they happen regularly. Taking precautions can reduce accidents, but not eliminate them, so it is important to be prepared to handle accidents when they occur.
Taking precautions can help reduce the amount of accidents you encounter, but sometimes they are out of your control and just happen to you. Identifying dangers and being diligent when doing activities that could result in injury will also decrease accident threats. However, inevitably you will be involved in an accident. Whether in your home, out in public or in your car you should acknowledge that an accident could occur.
When precautions aren't enough and an accident happens, you need to be prepared to response. There are many types of accidents, but the most common include: Car Accidents, Slips & Falls and Pedestrians & Bicycle accidents. Being prepared for and accident means you have the skills to identify environmental threats and employing best safety practices to reduce danger; as well as having the supplies and skills to address the effects of the accident.
