Sorry to hear of your daughters illness and to also hear that the outlook is dismal.
What is she suufering from?, if I may ask.
There is ALWAYS a good reason for posting these accidents, it shows all of us what can(and will!) go wrong, given the right circumstances.
Occupational Safety, is not an area that most companies look into, until they have a serious injury or Fatality.
This is all the wrong way around!.
If all companies were as Pro-Safety as what they say they are, we would reduce accidents and (most importantly, suffering), to practically Nil.
Like you said Bryan, most of the normal accidents, go un-reported, because it would affect the Employers Safety Record?.
What are your thoughts on this?.
