     Best answer!

    I would imagine anything that would put the persons safety in harms way. If they were being transported and the driver was speeding, no seat belts. If the support worker was supposed to be watching them but isn't.

    I think the worst unsafe practice that put's many individuals lives on the line every day is distracted driving. People text when they drive, eat, talk on the phone, change cd's or the radio station, correct their children, drive when they are tired, and just don't pay attention like they should.

    This is extremely dangerous, I have seen so many drivers veering into other lanes, driving way to slow, or just not paying attention at all. It's an extremely dangerous practice, I hope the people that read this will be more careful when they drive. TMO

    People with common contagious sicknesses like the common cold who show up to work and don't bother taking extra precautions like abstaining from hand shakes, washing hands after sneezing while manipulating common contact areas like computer keyboards, light switches, coffee pots etc.

    itsmee I really like your answer. I had the horrid flu not long ago and I abstained from coming to akaqa unless I wore my mask. No kidding, when I went to the Dr. the first thing I did was ask for a mask. I didn't want anybody to ever feel like I did. It was a virus and the doctor was pleased with me. I go around with my alcohol bottle and do door knobs, keyboards, all sorts of handles. The keyboard has more germs than the toilet seat. (Source: Pam on The Office. TV)

    Eating too much ice-cream before an exam, it sure freezes your brain up :(

    itsmee At one time, I panicked before a big exam. I had anti-anxiety pills that I could take before the exam. What happened. I was about to go out the door and I realized I forgot if I had taken the pill or not.
    I did a lot of deep breathing that day.
    If I had taken two pills it would be dangerous. If I had taken no pills I could definitely have suffered brain freeze.

    Having sex with girls you meet in the street, especially if you take them home. Their own places may well have hazards also - drug-crazed boyfriends, for instance - but at least you can't have pinched more than you have brought with you.
    Most of us know this already, as I suspect is the case with most of the other answers given.
    Incidentally, it's not a good idea to drive a powered pallet truck or a forklift in a crowded warehouse while plugged into your iPod (or MP3 player, or Walkman or whatever you have). Bet most of you knew this too.

    supporting people with learning difficulties

    Jenn What???? I am dylexic.... Why do you think I am less worthy than you? What do you mean by support?
    Colleen I will support you for as long as I know you Jenn. I'll always have your back ;)

    magenga, I hope you worded your comment incorrectly, otherwise, in my opinion, you are the one with a learning difficulty. It's called inability to be compassionate of others.
    doolittle Jenn, I have dislexia-especially bad with #s I will support you!
    itsmee Jenn: I have Attention Deficit. I understand you and support you.

    Colleen sure gave a good answer.

    Each and every individual has a responsibility towards another. Ignoring this can have a serious consequence on the person. For example, if a person is discriminated against for whatever reason, whereas a strong-hearted person might be able to cope, a weaker person can go to the extreme of even taking his or her own life.

    In a nutshell, any action that will cause pain to another can affect his or her well-being.
