Freight Doesn't Complain

By Johny Jagannath
Wikipedia says that Occupational Health & Safety (OSH) is a cross-disciplinary area concerned with protecting the safety, health and welfare of people engaged in work or employment. 

But I think that they've ignored Airplane safety and the hazards that are associated with an Airplane crash for too long now. On an average at least 800 people die every year owing to Airplane crashes. And I see that these deaths are often justified by pointing at car accidents. This in other words is known as bait-and-switch.
The intention of the bait-and-switch is to encourage purchases of substituted goods, making consumers satisfied with the available stock offered, as an alternative to a disappointment or inconvenience of acquiring no goods (or bait) at all, and reckoning on a seemingly partial recovery of sunk costs expended trying to obtain the bait.

Things that OSH needs to look at, with regard to passenger Aviation:   

   1. Emergency during landing and take off. 
   2. Emergency in air with no runway to land on. 

These emergencies can be easily dealt with by installing Ejection_seats. So, why are people being treated like Freight? Because, Freight doesn't complain.
