Being punitive shouldn't be the motive. Making people as whole again as possible should be. Being punished for not taking enough care isn't the proper form of instruction. A working conscience should be the instructor. Care should be the concern from the outset. Trying to make the most money by being hard rather than trying to bring forth the highest quality of life for all by being soft is not the right frame of mind for reducing or eliminating risks.
