Hazard and Risk Assessment

Hazard Identification Workshop

This training focuses on the identification, evaluation and abatement of hazards in the workplace, and is for managers, supervisors, the safety staff, safety committee members and those with different levels of safety responsibility within the organization.

The training begins with analyzing digital photos and videos to recognize hazards within the hosting organization’s facility. Job safety and health analyses (JSA’s) for high-risk tasks are reviewed, as are work procedures developed by the organization.

Topics include:

  • Establishing periodic inspection systems/on-going implementation
  • The most violated OSHA standards as it applies to the hosting organization

A facility inspection is conducted and participants identify substandard conditions, and document and address those deemed high-risk immediately. Low-risk findings are placed in the organization’s work-order system. Participants are enabled to identify, evaluate and abate hazards within the workplace while managing the safety and health systems within their organization.

Hazard Mapping Workshop

A hazard map is a visual representation of the workplace identifying hazards that could cause near-miss, injury/illness situations, property damage, equipment damage, process loss or environmental events. Workshop groups are from the same department, process area or engaged in same type of work activities.

The training guides participants in developing a hazard map of their work area, process or work activity. First, participants tour their area and create a list of common and rare hazards associated with their workstation. After returning to the classroom, each group adds to the list near-misses and injury accidents that have occurred within their work area. The facilitator then guides participants in creating a map of current and potential hazards.

Topics include:

  • Color coding
  • Frequency of occurrence labeling
  • Severity of injury potential labeling
  • Near-miss occurrence labeling
  • Personal injury incident labeling

Once the process is completed these maps can be posted in each workstation and used in safety orientations.
