What do I need to do to Manage Hazards?

See it – Assess it – Fix it – Evaluate it.

See it

  • Talk to your workers – they are exposed to workplace hazards and risks every day.
  • Perform workplace inspections – simply walking around and visually inspecting the workplace can reveal hazards that might have been overlooked.

Assess it

  • Look at each of the hazards you have identified and determine its potential level of harm
  • How likely is it to cause an injury or incident?
  • How severe would be the consequences if an incident occurred?

Fix it

Fixing (more commonly known as controlling) a hazard involves

  • Elimination;
  • Substitution;
  • Isolation;
  • Engineering;
  • Administration and;
  • Providing PPE

Evaluate it

Review your risk assessment to see how effective your control measures are. Some questions you will need to ask during the review are:

  • Did you eliminate the hazard?
  • Have there been any incidents since implementing the control measures?
  • How safe is it to work now with the control measures compared to before?
  • Are there any other control measures that should be implemented?
  • Are there any other hazards that have not been identified?

You are able to record these details within your system. By doing so, you are meeting the legislative requirement to maintain a register of workplace health and safety risks and hazards.
