"Our Facility experienced three first aid incidents in one day. Upon investigating it was determined all were avoidable. If so, why were our hazard identification techniques not effective? Our facility developed a 360 Mindset Program (Hazard Identification: Thinking Outside the Box). When we conduct work we often focus on the hazards specific to the task based on our knowledge and experience (the box). But what other hazards specific or have the potential to exists? What's OUTSIDE THE BOX? When we think outside the box we also consider and identify potential hazards of the work area."
