HAZARD AND RISK MANAGEMENT

Be a Health & Safety Leader - know your environment, understand the risks, how to  eliminate, reduce or mitigate the danger to your people and make your workplace safer.

There are several steps in the process;

  • Identification and reporting of the hazard

  • Analysis of the level of risk and seriousness of injury                                                              If the risk is classified critical go to our Critical Risk  page for tools to help.

  • Elimination, reduction or mitigation of the hazard                                                                  See our Hierarchy of Controls page for examples of this

  • Monitor the outcome and repeat as needed
