Some standards are frequently cited because these standards cover 1 areas in which industries are having difficulty complying, or 2 areas in which enforcement agencies are giving a great deal of attention, or both. Many aspects about the standards might be useful. The text emphasizes the importance of the "why" behind the standards that do exist. It is an unattainable goal. Such a strategy fails to recognize the need for discrimination among hazards to be corrected. A safety hazard is acute, causes or threatens to cause injuries, and is usually more obvious than a health hazard.
