Every workplace has hazards. The important thing is to know
what to do when you see a hazard, even when you’re at school.
WHAT IS A HAZARD?
A hazard is something that could cause you or someone else an injury
Think about some of the things that happen in workplaces. Wet and
slippery floors, lifting and carrying things, working alone at night, and
violence and robbery are all hazards.
WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU SEE A HAZARD
When you see a hazard in a workplace or at school, think about what you
can do to make the area safe. Take some action.
For example, a computer cord lying on the floor in a hallway is a hazard.
If it is not moved someone could trip on it and fall.
To prevent an injury, you could move the cord closer to the desk and out
of the walkway or you could stick the cord to the floor with some tape.
If you can’t do anything about the hazard, let other people know about it.
Report the hazard to a supervisor or a teacher.
HOW TO REPORT HAZARDS
Some workplaces have report forms for staff to fill out and pass on to the
supervisor. At school, report the hazard to the reception staff or a teacher.
Hazards – see them, fix them, let someone know.
