content of this site is not to name or shame or to be funny it is for
anyone who has an interest in occupational health and safety and some of
the hazards people at work encounter . But I do hope you enjoy your
visit and gain something from this site.
The purpose of this web site is to provide
practical information that might be helpful to NEBOSH, occupational
health/safety students and others, whilst taking part in their studies.
It brings together in one place, photographs of hazards, poor working
procedures and near misses in the workplace. Accidents and lessons
learned from them will also feature from time to time.
The web site is not a substitute for training, but a visual aid, the
book, site visits and research are essential.
The web site is international and available to all and this web site
does not seek to replace any national/local law or regulations, or other
professional guidance on regulations.
No guidance on this site should be taken as authoritative

will be identified by country of origin.
No judgements will be made that is for the courts.
