for 4 marks

Give Four reasons why the seriousness of a hazard may be underestimated by someone exposed to it

my answers are

1) The person has become complacent
2) The person hasn’t been made aware of the seriousness of the hazard
3) The person is ignorant.
4) ???

im pretty sure the first 2 are ok, 3 is a bit of a stab in the dark, and i cant think of another? any help would be gratefully received!


I would suggest no 3 as the person trying to meet deadlines therefore hurrying and not complying fully with the normal SSOW.
No 4 could perhaps be fatigue either work related (not had a break), or even because they have problems at home, had a night out or similar, thus not enough sleep (new baby).

Other reasons may be lack of correct safety awareness training, perhaps the machinery being used isn't working correctly and instead of calling maintenance, one becomes edgy and frustrated to get the job done, so impatience and cutting corners causes injury, housekeeping issues like messy or oily floors causing slips, area not sufficient in size to work freely and safely.

Hope this helps a bit.

thanks alexis, i think it went ok, i knew a general answer to all of the questions, however some could have probably done with a bit more detail, or been slightly less vauge, but they were the exception rather than the rule i think :)

Hope the exams went well and your results are what you want!!! I too was in the same boat as you mate. Im 18 years old and just sat my NGC1 & 2 Exams today, practical on Monday. I have not got a job role. But i like the health and safety side off things. After i get my results in Feb id like to take the conversion of the construction course on. How did you find the course (NCC1) ?

All the best mate.

Nick
Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst.

A big thank you to all the members here at HSfB.

not too bad to be honest, had some fairly kind questions which helped things, and a nice 20 marker which got things going nicely!
