Thanks for your time and I really appreciate it. I was in the same position and got a bit worried about taking the test because I had similar questions on my earlier versions of the Operations Health and Safety Act Assessment. One of them concerned “have you ever made a mistake that might have prevented an accident from occurring?” The questions really threw me off and I couldn’t help comparing it with my performance in my jobs and my experience in the military.
I definitely want to take your operational risk quiz for me. I really need to get it just to jog my memory and feel more prepared. What happened, where did the accident take place and what kind of injuries or casualties did I have to deal with? I’ll list a few questions here.
“Have you ever made a mistake that could have prevented an accident from taking place?” In other words, is the question asking if you have made any mistakes that could have prevented an accident? This is a good question and I think many people who take their Operational Risk Quiz for themselves, often don’t answer yes to this question.
“And have you ever been in a situation where you had to make a decision that would have resulted in bad things happening?” In other words have you ever found yourself in a situation where you had to take a risk and your risk could have turned out badly? Does this mean that you are a bad person? This is yet another good question and one that many people don’t consider when they take their Operational Risk Quiz for themselves.
“And have you ever been on holiday and needed to make a personal adjustment?” Is this an answer to the above question? Sometimes we’re too relaxed and not put in any particular effort when we take our Operational Risk Quiz for ourselves and we end up giving answers that may actually not apply to the real world.
Another example could be when you ask: “How many speeding tickets have you accumulated during your driving career?” This may seem like a silly question but the truth is that it can be very relevant and will tell you something about you. For example, if you’ve always gone for the fast speed limit and haven’t got any tickets then this is a good question to ask yourself and you may realise that speeding is not the best thing for you to do. If you haven’t got any speeding tickets then this may tell you that you don’t drive carefully and this may be true. You can also take my operational risk quiz for yourself and discover areas in your driving that you need to work on to make your driving safer.
“And have you been convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol?” Again this is a very direct question and one that can tell you a lot about you. If you are a heavy drinker then this could indicate that you are putting your health and even life at risk. You can take my Operational Risk Quiz for yourself and discover areas in your driving that you should work on to lower your risk of getting a DUI or being charged with a DUI. Now that you know what to look for in a quiz, go ahead and take one for yourself.
