Reflective Learning - Remove the Hazard

We all live with hazards every day and as a team, we work hard to try and prevent them by taking sensible precautions every day to reduce our exposure to hazards. Thinking about the hazards that might be around us, is a very human thing to do. It's that sense of caution that makes us look for hazards, work out how to prevent them and best of all, remove them altogether. You can use something called the hierarchy of control to help you do just that. It helps you to think about the choices you can make to deal with all kinds of hazards in a step-by-step way.

The aim of this course is not to just watch a video, it is to think and discuss collective normalisation. We want the learner to reflect on what the term means to them in their work activities. We want them to relate to situations on board their ship and what they could do differently in the future. The learner has an opportunity to understand and contemplate how to prevent such incidents from happening aboard their ship in the future.
