How people may be hurt:

Thinking about your activities, could you be hurt and if you were could it be significant?

List the activities and the risk of you being hurt for each activity.

Use the matrix at the bottom of this page to judge the potential risk level of the activity. For example: Filming in the Mt Victoria Tunnel for an hour – could be hit by a bicycle, Low risk - high noise levels of car horns, Low/medium - breathing in car and truck fumes, low

What controls have/will you put in place to stop people being hurt?

For example: Controls for filming in Mt Vic tunnel – wear high viz vest and have an observer, wear earplugs, if fumes affect me leave tunnel immediately or wear a mask.
