Michael Tomlinson's insight:

This is a silly video aimed at children, but to me it still clearly shows why we need to be aware of hazards in any situation, and whilst some things may be clear and seem like common sense to us, it may not be so clear for others. And that is why we need clear and purposeful training, teaching, and being able to perform your job and daily life safely.
