Apathy, Insignificant - don't care, unimportant.4. Facility and Equipment Condition - design, modification or deterioration contributing to at-risk condition or behavior.5. Disagreement on At-Risk Practices - cannot agree that an at-risk condition or behavior exists.6. Personal Factors or Distractions - not thinking, mind not on the task at hand, preoccupied, self imposed pressure.7. Accepted Culture or Peer Pressure - doing the wrong thing because our peers do, going along with the crowd, rather not “rock the boat”.8.
