Hazard ID and risk management

Every workplace has many hazards to be identified, assessed, and controlled. It is important to identify all hazards in the workplace and evaluate the risks associated with these hazards to lower the risk of injury and property damage.

An effective hazard ID program should include how you will identify hazards and conduct risk assessments. It should also address:

  • Roles and responsibilities of those involved in hazard identification
  • How your company will use the information
  • Training for employed involved in risk assessment
  • Regular review of the program
