- You need to take a digital photo of the hazard or situation and submit it.
- Along with the photo, you need to provide a text description as to why the hazard or situation poses a risk for injury, and provide a description of the type of injury that could be sustained (describe the possible significance).
- You should also discuss briefly how the hazard could be abated or controlled to prevent injury. Do what is possible to abate or control the hazard.
