Hazards
5
Different workplaces have different things that can harm people,
called hazards. Some examples are listed below. Complete a plan of
your workplace on a separate piece of paper (or a computer) and
produce a hazard map showing which hazards are present in different
areas. Create a symbol for each hazard and draw them on the plan,
with a key to explain what each symbol means.
The plan should also show all safety equipment, for example fire
extinguishers, fire exits, escape routes, first aid boxes, signs, and so on.
Examples of hazards include:
chemical substances;
dust and fumes;
excessive noise;
moving vehicles;
moving parts in machinery;
electricity;
extremes of heat/cold;
work at height;
animals;
biological substances, for example waste products from animals
and plant poisons;
repetitive movements;
uneven floors; and
stress/harassment/bullying. (Add any others you identify below).

Carry Out a Risk Assessment
To be risk aware, you need to identify the hazards in your workplace and
find out what measures are in place to combat them. How badly could a
person be hurt? How likely is this to happen?
Find a possible hazard in your workplace or classroom, then answer the
following questions:
What is the hazard, and what precautions/controls are there to
combat it? If there was an accident, how serious could the injury be?
How likely (or unlikely) is such an accident to happen?
Are there any extra precautions you need to take to BE SAFE?

Accident/Disease Case Study
Study the details of an accident and try to work out what caused it by
asking why it happened. Keep on asking why until you arrive at the
underlying cause(s). For example, the immediate cause of someone
slipping up may be oil on the floor, but the underlying cause of this
might be unsafe working practices. When you have found the immediate
and underlying causes, suggest how such an accident could be prevented
in future. Discuss this task with your supervisor/tutor to ensure it is
completed correctly.
