Held in the rich natural environment surrounding the Nandabe-mura farmhouse pension, the Hazard Recognition Training workshop teaches accident awareness and risk management while awakening and sharpening your level of awareness of your surroundings.
Through taking part in Ouse’s Hazard Recognition Training, you will become aware of potential dangers lurking in nature, and acquire the skills needed to react before problems occur. Risk management, flexibility in thought and action, and an ability to generate ideas are crucial regardless of industry—and never more so in our increasingly mechanized society. The good news is that these skills can be trained. Come to Ouse—and set you and your team up for a safer future!
Hazard Recognition Training takes place over two days and one night. It is generally organized into six stages.
Ishii, the head of Nandabe-mura, provides an overview of hazard recognition, and discusses the dangers lurking in nature.
How much do you already know? Find out by filling out hazard recognition and countermeasures worksheets before training begins.
Practice hazard recognition while exploring the treasure trove of nature around Nandabe-mura, home to living creatures, plants, rice paddies, fields, biotopes, wells, log cabins, rivers and more. Look, touch, smell, listen, taste, and get to grips with nature!
Ready for adventure? We hope so! In groups, you will discuss, plan and build a raft before floating it in the river.
Put your skills and sensibilities to work by using bamboo and wood from around the Nandabe-mura estate to create original works of your own. Afterwards, you and your fellow hazard-recognition trainees will show off your handiwork to each other.
What have you learned over the past two days? Now is your chance to look back over the workshop from start to finish, and to reflect on whether you were able to recognize hazards, put countermeasures into place, and think and act with flexibility.
