  • The age of the employee, as well as his/her experience of work in general, and of the task to be performed in particular;



  • The nature and complexity of the task and its inherent risks;
  • The person’s skills and qualifications for the work;
  • His/her attitude and aptitude;
  • The systems of work and any specific safety requirements applying to the task;
  • The employee’s communication skills and any special needs he/she may have.
