Work placements can be a busy time for students, with lots of new things to learn, and people to meet. It is important that students know as much as they can about occupational health and safety before they start.

Every workplace is different, but in every industry it’s important that everyone at work makes health and safety a priority. For a general overview of hazards that exist in all workplaces, take a look at common hazards in the workplace.

The following ten videos discuss the potential occupational health and safety issues that may arise in each of the ten industries listed. Students are encouraged to watch the video relevant to their chosen placement prior to going on work experience or structured workplace learning.
