When I hear comments like “the best safety mechanism is between your ears” (as if someone disputes that) or “Saw Stop is great, but it does not protect you from bicycle falls” I feel like statistics in general and probability theory in particular should not only be required subject in schools, but be hammered in pretty hard. Clearly, additive and multiplicative properties of risks elude a lot of people.
Having said that, my order of preference to improve safety would be:
1) Statistics in schools
2) Slider
3) Saw Stop
