The three “E’s” of safe product design

I stumbled upon the website for an engineering firm in Texas called Nelson & Associates.  It provides an excellent summary of the basic safety rules for creating and designing any product.  Products must be designed according to the three E’s, in order of importance:

1. Eliminate hazards

2.  Employ safety equipment

3.  Educate users of foreseeable hazards

For the full post, go to their “Core Principles” page.
