  1. Notes. Agreement with: generally reassess behaviour based on warning labels is abbreviated to ‘Reassess’; always read product warning labels abbreviated to ‘Read’; too many product warning labels so I tend to ignore them abbreviated to ‘Ignore’; most product warning labels are not relevant to me abbreviated to ‘Irrelevant’; prefer to have product labels so I know what the risks are abbreviated to ‘Risk’
