      My first job was as a maintenance apprentice in a coal mine, so that was pretty dangerous. I then worked on oil rigs and in chemical plants, again both are fairly dangerous. The nearest I ever came to a serious accident however was when an engine exploded during testing during my time in the automotive industry. Working in a university as I do now is much safer!!

      no danger for me, health and safety is pretty stringent.

      Health and safety is pretty strict but accidents do happen
