Workers in these types of jobs must constantly maintain awareness of various factors, such as keeping Minimum Approach Distances MAD from power lines, using proper ground-fault protection, and maintaining wires, tools, or extension cords in safe working condition. These hazards are compounded further in jobs where this work is done at elevated heights, requiring even further concentration and focus. Safe work practices for these working conditions are obviously trainable as with all of these examples , but individuals with naturally lower awareness must be particularly vigilant about electrical risks and the behaviors they must use to avoid injury or death.

So, what happens if you tend to be have lower awareness? No, of course not.

The nature of the job, training quality, and company safety culture will all impact this exposure level as well. However, by learning about oneself and acknowledging the fact that one may simply be prone to greater distraction or forgetfulness in certain situations, a person can easily reduce their risk by engaging in certain precautions and proactive behaviors to make up for their blind spot in awareness.

He could stay in the woods until Iruka came back, or he could attempt to sneak back into his apartment and hope that the landlord wouldn't find him. After a moment of thought, he decided that the latter would only result in his being thrown in jail and that was the last place he wanted to go. The woods would have been nearly perfect, except for one major discrepancy.
