General health and safety precautions
There are many generic hazards which can arise during the examination and sampling procedure. There are also specific hazards relevant to certain goods.
You must take a proactive approach to protect your own safety and that of other people working with you or for whom you are responsible.
You must also make sure that you do not expose others to greater risks either through contamination of the goods or, as a result of your own action, by leaving the goods in a dangerous state.
