NEBOSH IGc 1 question paper model : September
A young lady worked at a paper mill after her first year of college. Learning the ropes at the mill also meant learning all the shortcuts. Before she went to work, she had to have her hearing and sight tested to ensure that she could properly hear and see warning signals. Next, she completed a week of classroom-based training that consisted of videos, written information, and discussion. She then moved into the mill,
One day, she decided to take a shortcut through the mill – just as so many before her, including guests and other workers. The shortcut was to step over a conveyor belt that runs through the whole building.
Placing her foot at the wrong place at the wrong time, it was pulled into the conveyor. Her left foot entered a hole not much larger than a quarter. She screamed, there was no emergency stop on the system, but even though another worker was able to stop the belt, saved her life. Maintenance crews were called to take the system apart. It took them 25 minutes. She was awake the entire time.
She was rushed to a hospital nearby, and then to another hospital more experienced with trauma cases. They amputated her foot from the knee down. She overcame the injury, even though she and her family suffered a lot to recover,
