Introduction to Working Safely
You’ve Been Framed has taught us that hazards are everywhere. From tangled wires and broken plug sockets, to a slippery dance floor at a wedding reception, potential dangers are lurking around every corner. Usually the hazard is the star of a hilarious video but, when it comes to business, a hazard must be dealt with carefully.
In the workplace it’s imperative to spot and remove hazards so nobody can injure themselves. But when they cannot be removed, and an element of risk remains, safe systems of work come into their own.
