      1st Answer Example

      "When I first began as an apprentice, I was witness to an accident on the job. My colleague was in a rush and did not take the required steps to ensure his safety. He was injured quite severely, and it was an eye-opening experience. Since then, I always ensure that I take the appropriate steps and that my tools are properly insulated."
