What's wrong with this picture? Spot the safety violation

We all do it – you need to reach something on the top shelf in your cupboard, the ladder’s outside in the garage, so you grab the nearest chair and climb on. Mostly, we come down from the chair without a problem. But sometimes, we slip and fall, possibly injuring ourselves quite badly.

 

The same behaviour sometimes carries through to the workplace, to varying degrees. Here’s a challenge for you. Below are five examples of clear safety violations in the workplace. Take a look at each picture, and in the form that follows, let us know how each worker is breaking health and safety rules. You can include advice and tips on how the employees should have acted.

 

Spread the safety word

Once you have completed the form, visit our Facebook page and post safety violations you’ve noticed in your own day-to-day duties that need fixing. Hashtag it #SafetyFirst, and include a message on what should have been done in the situation. Tag us @NOSAtweets if you are using your personal account on Facebook or Twitter.

But for now... here are your five pictures:
