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
What is the difference between a hazard and a risk, and why does it matter?
