Description

The video shows young workers in the horticulture industry handling dangerous substances. One young worker has an accident and gets a second chance to learn how to work safely. Two young workers are cleaning the greenhouse with a special cleaning agent. One of the young workers is working at a height and needs a new cleaning agent. When handing the unsafe container of cleaning agent, an accident happens. The container falls on the young woman and, because the container is not closed properly, her eyes and skin are seriously injured by the cleaning substance. Fortunately, she gets a second chance: her supervisor shows her how she could have prevented the accident. The video is also available on YouTube: https://youtu.be/Pm6jp8PB6XI
