Civil servants are under fire, but are there ways to keep them safe?
A new study has found that only about one-third of civil servants in the government are confident about their safety.
The report says, though, that it has a lot of data to support its conclusion.
“If the government continues to allow its civil servants to be vulnerable, then they will be at greater risk of serious injury,” said Prof. Abhinav Gupta, the study’s lead author and associate professor of civil engineering at MIT.
Gupta, who has also worked for the Federal Reserve, said the study is a reflection of the government’s unwillingness to invest in safety.
“The government’s attitude is that they want to take a safer approach,” Gupta said.
“They are unwilling to invest resources in training people to be safer, and they’re not willing to invest into infrastructure to ensure safety.”
