Every year accidents kill thousands of people, injure millions more and destroy buildings, land, and valuables. Many of these accidents are caused by carelessness or by defects in buildings or machines. If a man runs out into a busy street and is hit by a car, his carelessness has caused the accident and no one but himself to blame. But if a ceiling falls on him when he is in a building, it is a different matter. The ceiling may have been poorly constructed, or the landlord may have allowed it .

They are usually caused by freaks of nature and are so called freak accidents. Many accidents, however, could easily be prevented simple rules of safety in home, schools, offices, cars, and public places.
