The idea of total fall prevention is a little far-fetched. No one can prevent all slip & falls. However, if you are a caregiver, you can help reduce falls for seniors! The role of caregiving is often filled by a family member, spouse, or service provider. If you fit into any of these categories, then you know all too well that it can be both rewarding and exhausting.

You can actively protect the ones you care for by preventing falls. There is, however, a fine line between being helpful and enabling. The first step in proactive fall reduction is often overlooked.

SIlversphere's Philosophy on Acceptable Failure Rates

Posted by Mike Boone

June 15, 2018 8:00:00 AM EDT

This blog was originally published in March 2017 and has been since updated to reflect any changes deemed necessary.

 In the world of manufacturing, there exists what is known as the "acceptable failure rate." It is something all engineers and manufacturers have to take into consideration when developing and producing a product. It is defined as the frequency with which an engineered system or component fails, expressed in failures per unit of time. Acceptable failure rates depend solely on the industry and product. Depending what sector, you are manufacturing for, it could be as high as 3 out of every 100 or as low as 1 out of every 1,000,000.
