In what ways can those who use sports facilities be made more aware of safety procedures? Should rules of etiquette be actively enforced?

We should always have rules of etiquette in place in all public places and events. And they should be strictly enforced.

Francis Chong

If equipment is checked often, serviced if necessary to make sure it is in good working condition, and the people using it observe the basic safety rules, there should not be a high risk of injury or even death.

Peter Tan

The risk assessments on sports facilities in schools may not be sufficiently rigorous. Schools should ask themselves what are the possible incidents that could cause injury to students... We need to know how kids would behave when using the facilities.

In the high-yield crop cultivation required to meet demand today, the use of pesticides has become a necessity... I find it difficult to believe that large-scale organic farming does not use chemical fertilisers and pesticides at all... I will not pay for organic produce which cannot guarantee that these were not used.
