No 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17

Hazard Kettle with trailing cord The kettle cord Water is spilling on to the floor The cutting side of the knife is facing outwards There is a cat in the kitchen The stove is on and unattended The matches The window is open There is a pot of flowers on the edge of the window sill. There is a bee or wasp in the kitchen The pantry door is open Poisonous chemicals and cleaning products, easy to get a hold of. The fridge is open The iron board The water jug The cake is left unattended The kettle of water is near the stove

Consequence A child could pull on the cord and drag the kettle of hot water down on themselves. The kettle cord could be a tripping hazard. Someone who didnt see the puddle of water on the floor could slip and get injured. This could injure someone if they brush past it as it might fall and cut your foot or leg. The cat could knock over things and hurt itself. There is no one near the stove to watch it so therefore it can be dangerous The matches can be a hazard because a baby or toddler could light the matches accidently. The dust and dirt particles could enter the kitchen which is unhygienic. The pot could fall of over and can be a safety hazard. This insect can be harmful as it can sting you or can fly in your face and distract you. This can be a tripping hazard and the corners of the pantry door can be sharp and injure someone. A baby or infant can crawl and drink the poisonous cleaning products. The fridge is open and can spoil the milk, and dairy products. This can be unhygienic and make someone sick if they intake the spoilt food. A baby can crawl under and it could fall on them and it is causing clutter in the kitchen. The water jug is on the very edge of the table so it could fall and shatter into sharp pieces. The cake is left unattended so therefore it could burn and be dangerous. If someone spills the hot kettle water, not only can it burn someone who is near the stove but can pour on to the fire and make a really big fire.
