Can you spot the hazards for work at height?

Graham Marshall - Thursday, March 31, 2011
Today I've put together a little test of your hazard spotting ability. 

Below is a single picture showing a work-party doing a simple job at height.

All you have to do is identify the hazards you see.

My guess is that you will fail to correctly identify any of the hazards that are present in the job being done.

Furthermore, I've included an answer sheet that I'll use to predict the things that you will incorrectly identify as hazards.

To open the answer sheet, simply click here.
