Main theme: SAFETY AT WORK 
In every job, in every professional activity, risks are involved. Some problems hardly have any physical impact but can cause psychological disorders. In other professions accidents with physical damage are hardly inevitable. 
What if safety regulations are practised inadequately? Manuals are not observed? Carelessness and routine have the upper hand? Which consequences does it have for the materials which are used, the product, the construction, the project in general?
