Sample Video Transcript

Below is a transcript of the video sample provided for this module:

Safety begins with identifying hazards and then working to eliminate, avoid, reduce, or control them. A hazard is any situation or condition with the potential to harm life, health, property, or the environment. Hazards exist in all walks of life: at your home, on streets and highways, and in every workplace. Hazards can be placed into at least three main groups: physical hazards related to working around dangerous moving machine parts, mobile equipment and energy sources, work environment hazards associated with noise, air quality, toxic materials, or other job-related conditions, and performance and behavioral hazards resulting from a lack of hazard awareness, inexperience, carelessness, and/or insufficient training.
