Ines Martin's curator insight, August 2, 2015 9:17 AM

This article doesn't answer any questions for me, but instead raises another question.... Is any job worth having if it is expected that you should take risks which could cause you harm? Makes me wonder why you would bother having any OHS policies.

Policing is another dream of mine which I toy around with but due to my personal circumstances always put it on the back burner, however, reading articles like this makes me question whether I would be prepared to take the expected risks?
