totally agree with this article. In 20 years people will look back at our era as a time when people were senselessly killed on city streets, just like we look back at 50 years ago when people were regularly killed in workplaces. What changed in the workplace? A realisation that there are very few accidents, and that the issue isn't whether accidents happen but how to design around their predictable consequences. Also, employers lost a lot of money in lawsuits. Unfortunately public agencies don't really care about being sued because it just goes back to the taxpayer.

This is not to say that there still aren't too many workplace injuries.
