If you live anywhere in or around the Bay Area, you know about the $2.2 billion transit hub that just opened in San Francisco. It has been a source of wonder and amazement since well before it was completed. With a couple billion-dollar price tag, you would think that there would be nothing wrong with the building.

Unfortunately, a cracked steel beam found a few weeks ago was not an isolated incident. A second faulty beam was discovered, this time prompting the entire complex to be shut down over safety concerns.

$2.2 billion and it sits unopened.

One thing this shows us is just how important the seemingly smallest things are. Out of all that was involved in this project, it is a few steel beams that cause the problem. But, if left alone, they could cause major injuries or death.

After all, the transit center was built over land that it highly geologically active.

But are you aware of how many faulty products are around us every day?

So Many Product

Think about how many products you use on a daily basis. The numbers are staggering. From your morning coffee and breakfast to your workday and ride home, you count on hundreds, maybe thousands, of products to work correctly.

What can go wrong?

  • Faulty designs can cause products to malfunction and harm people. Whether it is a lawnmower, steel beam, or a medical formula, if there is something wrong with the design, millions of people could be affected.
  • Manufacturing issues can happen to a product after the design is set. If something goes wrong while the product is being made, it can be just as dangerous as if there was a faulty design.
  • Labeling problems can really cause havoc. If manufacturers do not warn people of all the hazards associated with their products, people can get hurt. This includes listing things like choking hazards, fire hazards, medication side effects, and food allergens. It can also include improper dosage labeling for medications.

A quick look at the government website that tracks recalls will show you that there are thousands of products out there being recalled. Most people are not aware of how often it happens and how many people are in danger.
