Hazard Awareness is Poor

Graham Marshall - Monday, June 27, 2011
Other the years, we at the risk tool box have argued that one of the main reasons why accidents continue to occur is because hazard awareness is so poor.  Enclosed here are some results from training courses we've run in several companies.

They show "pre-training" results on a  20-item survey of knowledge about hazards followed by "post-training" results for the same group.

As can be seen, pre-training hazard awareness is quite low.

On conclusion of our hazard awareness training, however, knowledge about hazards has improved significantly.

To check out the results for yourself, simply click here.

Over the years, our training has been employed by companies like Woodside, Shell, BHP Billiton, Santos, Fremantle Ports, Sandvik, British Gas, Eni, TK Shipping, Nautronix, Transfield Worley and Hess Corp.
