We've just been given leaflets at work regarding a forthcoming Health and Safety audit. The leaflet's title is 'Making <company name> a "Safer" Place'. Can any students of our wonderful language please explain the significance of the punctuation marks around the key part of the title?

I think you could be right Wayland. I've now read it and, between terms such as 'proactive' and 'continuous improvement culture' is a list of key benefits. Number one on the list is legal and regulatory compliance, the last one is ensuring a safe working environment. Speaks volumes.
I "love" this company, they really "care" about their workforce.
Is it used in the absence of a sarcastic font?
