“Design For Product Safety with Ken d’Entremont”–Video 3: I Don’t Care About HEALTH, I Only Care About SAFETY!

The public does not understand the differences between Health and Safety.

During COVID-19, people would exhort others to “stay safe.” What they really meant was to “stay healthy.”

The health profession has accepted, authoritative Permissible Exposure Limits (PELs) for Cadmium, for example. Safety has no such black-and-white acceptable-risk levels.

Consequently, safety is quite hard to address and decide when a product is “safe enough.” So, when the term “Health and Safety” is mentioned, health is latched onto while safety is forgotten.

In future videos, I will address the topic of “Health VERSUS Safety.”
