Marsaxlokk –
Loose ropes by dock,
We will move or adjust the ropes placement so that no one will fall or trip over it. If this is not allowed or possible, we will ensure every person in our crew is aware the ropes are there to make them wary of them.

Slippery surfaces near slope for boats, 
We shall stay way back from these to dry ground to ensure we avoid these at all cost for the safety of ourselves and the equipment.

Ghar Dalam –
Darkness,
We will supply a fair amount of light inside the cave in order to get a good amount of light for both filming purposes and safety precautions. Although there is a barrier to prevent falling, there is still rugged rocks on the left side of the cave present so that if anyone were to fall they may still scratch their arm on the wall. To avoid this we shall hold tight to the barrier when walking among.

Falling rocks from above, 
We will need to ensure beforehand that the rocks are completely secure before even entering the cave as this a hazardly threat to any of this crews safety.

Rocks among the right-side of the path,
There is two rather large rocks that could easily be tripped upon or someone’s foot could be harmed. We will make everyone in the group aware of this before walking past, however concentrate on walking in the middle of the pathway as we know this is clear and safe.

Falling hazard,
Although there is a high barrier there is still a chance of falling over into the ocean. To ensure we don’t encounter this, we will stay back by at least 30cm away from the barrier as this is near enough not to fall over it however not too far to accidentally falling over the barrier if pushed by error.

Blue Grotto (Wied iź-Żurrieq) –
Boat slipway, 
These can easily be tripped over and it is not possible to move these or alter their position for our own safety as they are in use by members of the public who own boats and wish to put them on water. To avoid this we will walk down the steps located to the side to avoid any possible collision with a boat as well as tripping or falling down the slipway.

Cliff edges,
As there may be weak or eroded rock near the cliff edge, we should avoid standing towards the edge of the cliff. If we wish to film near a cliff side, we should stay well back and zoom if needed as safety is the main priority.

Slippery puddles near waters edge –
Be wary of puddles and try to safely avoid them however keeping in mind that the edge of the bay is very near. Make every member of the team aware of this.

Eroded steps – 
Although a barrier is present to protect us from falling, the steps themselves are wore away and the blunt edges may make it hard to detect them. We should watch where we are walking at all times as well as communicating between each other any additional hazards we see whilst there to make everyone aware and safe.
