Below is an essay on "Hazards" from Anti Essays, your source for research papers, essays, and term paper examples.

Within a school setting I would deal with any hazard I find as following:
For example, I enter a classroom and notice the side of the carpet has curled up. I would identify this as a trip hazard. Once I have identified the hazard I would then evaluate the potential risks that could occur from the hazard. In this case the hazard would have to be dealt with immediately to prevent a child, young person or an adult from accident or injury, as the carpet is a frequently used area of the classroom. After identifying any potential risks I would then assess if the control measures to keep the carpet secure where adequate or if further action needed to be taken to deal with the hazard found. In this case further action would be required to secure the carpet to the floor. I would proceed to deal with the hazard by temporarily making the carpet area inaccessible and informing any child, young person or adult who may enter the classroom of the hazard as well as the class teacher and the relevant person responsible for health and safety within the setting. I would make the carpet area temporarily inaccessible by placing a barrier such as an unused table in the way until the hazard is dealt with accordingly. I would then deal with the hazard by using hazard tape or a temporary form of adhesive found in the classroom environment to make sure the carpet is safely stuck to the floor, preventing a potential accident or injury to a child, young person or adult until the correct material can be used to ensure the carpet is safely and securely fixed to the floor. I would then make a record of the hazard I found in the relevant book according to the settings health and safety policies and procedures
