Although Hazard Awareness is very important analysis suggests that hand injuries don’t occur because the victim ‘didn’t know it would hurt’. It was not the absence of this knowledge that caused the accident to happen!
Studying the mechanism of accidents has led to the development of a model where a person can recognise the various elements which come together in order for them to happen. Once people can recognise this they are more able to predict errors, to see the situation coming and to take steps to prevent it happening.
When this preventative skill is added to basic hazard identification people will have the potential to actively prevent incidents.
