Health & Safety

I received this old image on a card today. Can anyone see the obvious danger here?

Look below the photo to see if you are correct...


Yes... with that severely bent left arm and the exaggerated transfer of weight onto the back foot there is a serious danger that the shot will end up as a slice to the right of the intended path and may hit a passer-by. An amateur's error.

And the chosen fashion hurts the bystanders eyes.

That's true... sometimes one can be so focused on an obvious risk that one misses another.

I think the golf court is missing. Like swimming in a no water pool.

Well, and the various risks of smoking ...

Good Heavens! How could I miss that one Sean!? Now I am wondering what obvious risks I may miss when I do my Health & Safety assessments for chemistry laboratory work. What else have I missed here? Are those (presumably) safety helmets possibly a bit too soft?
