Workplace Hazard Identification
Workplace Hazard Identification and taking a proactive risk assessment for identified hazards is the heart of today’s safety management. In fact, this is also a key requirement of the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015.
At BizSafety we spend much of our time with customers on site or in the workplace seeking out hazards which could lead to serious injury. We then work to confirm the best method of managing the hazards. Which if can’t be eliminated then may need Safe Operating Procedures, staff training and monitoring to manage the hazard to safety so that no one gets injured.
Bizsafety use five key steps to health and safety risk assessment
Hazard Identification - What is or could be dangerous in the workplace
Identify the people at risk - Who might get harmed and how
Evaluate the severity and likelihood of risks occurring and decide on suitable precautions and procedures.
Record the findings – Confirm the Hazards and recommended precautions
Involve staff on site – Their experience and site knowledge must be part of the process.
