This means that if the workers is having an over confidence. tiredness and breaking the rules and regulations. maybe some of the worker is an experienced labour and had experience of working for many years. If the workers are tired.The first method is that employees have to understand what the consequences and some action must be taken to avoid it. thus it may lead to accident which could harm other workers.d) having confidence is a good thing for the worker but over-confidence is otherwise. The example for this situation is when in the construction site. Besides that.

For construction site worker such as labour. workers should wear proper dress attire or uniform at their workplace depend on whether at construction site. Although he felt uncomfortable because it limits the visual of the welder while wearing the safety glasses. a labour needs to fix things like window or air conditioner at 10th floor. operator and technician. he needs to wear it even though unwillingly. he should not take off the protective equipment for their own safety.The second method of prevention accident at workplace is to obey the rules. in factory or even in the airport to maximize their safety.

They should place the cautious or alert warning boards whenever there is a dangerous area. excavation hole. the result could be disastrous and it can also bring affect to the other workers.d) states that a worker should be more aware about wearing proper uniforms. they have a greater chance of being involved in an accident due to their extreme working environment.

The employees and employer should play their role effectively. as the rate of accident at workplace is increasing throughout the year. Therefore. the employer should provide safety training and courses to train their workers. I would suggest that every employer must be strict about attending the training courses and hope that the rate of accident at workplace can decrease from time to time.In conclusion. Furthermore. On the other hand. those involved should play their own roles in order to decrease the rate of accidents at workplace efficiently and effectively. they also cannot disobey the rules. we must take a few precautions in order to prevent it from happening.
