Cool work safety tool from WorkSafeBC - "What's wrong with this photo?"

Remember playing those "what's wrong with this picture" games in activity books when you were a kid? Well WorkSafe BC has adapted the concept as a safety tool. Every issue of WorkSafe Magazine includes a photo that has been staged to show at least six hazards or dangerous work habits - you can interact with the photo to position pushpins on identified hazards, describe the hazards, and then submit your response to WorkSafeBC for a possible prize (although it's likely that only B.C. residents are eligible). In each issue, they include the winning entry from the last issue, along with responses from other readers. Neat.

One of the really cool and useful things is that they keep an archive of all past photos online - you can either take the challenge online and then check the answer key, or you can print the photos and the answer keys and use them in safety meetings or toolbox talks.

Here's one example: Can you spot the safety hazards in this commercial kitchen? Note: the image below is only a sample pic - the online interactive version is accessible at Kitchen Safety and here's the commercial kitchen answer key to check your responses.
