Safety is the state of being "safe", the condition of being protected against physical consequences of damage, accidents, harm or any other event which could be considered non-desirable to health. Safety can also be defined to be the control of recognized hazards to achieve an acceptable level of risk. This can take the form of being protected from the event or from exposure to something that causes health or economic losses.

First aid is the first and foremost treatment given to the victim of sudden accident or injury. It is the first assistance given to a casualty before the arrival of an ambulance to a qualified person. Certain minor injuries may not require further medical care past the first aid intervention.
