People want to feel safe in their own living environment. Yet there are always dangers and risks. Accidents, fires, floods, it can all occur. The chances of these are often small, but we would like to know what the risks and hazards are. Some risks are easy to visualise, while others are more difficult to display. For instance, it is easier to map companies with hazardous substances than feelings about social safety in a neighbourhood. What does a safe environment mean for health? What policies are in place to counter risks? And what can you yourself do to make a safe environment and improve your living environment?
