Safety observations can be used to prevent hazards and accidents and to promote well-being at the workplace. Only identified hazards can be managed so the observations have an important role in safety promotion. In addition to the safety problems, the observation can be a positive point also. No safety observation is too trivial to be reported.
If you notice something what can cause a accident, repair what you can and inform it to occupational safety personnel by safety observations form: (Haka-link for personnel and students): www.tuni.fi/rego
