Using the Hazard Management Guide is straightforward and user-friendly. Simply follow these steps:
A hazard refers to any potential source of harm or danger, such as a chemical substance or a faulty piece of equipment. Risk, on the other hand, is the likelihood and severity of harm that may result from the exposure to a hazard. In other words, a hazard is the potential danger, while risk is the chance of that danger causing harm.
Workplace hazards can be categorized into several types, including physical hazards (e.g., noise, temperature extremes), chemical hazards (e.g., toxic substances, flammable materials), biological hazards (e.g., bacteria, viruses), ergonomic hazards (e.g., repetitive motion, poor workstation design), and psychosocial hazards (e.g., workplace violence, stress).
Whilst they are very similar, and many solutions combine the two, a safety observation is organized and planned. During a specific period of time, a conductor focuses on identifying hazards and generating a report. Hazard Identification is continually ongoing, with everyone reporting any hazards as they identify them in the field.
Employees play a vital role in workplace hazard management. They should actively participate in hazard identification, report hazards to their supervisors, follow safety procedures and protocols, use provided PPE correctly, and contribute to the continuous improvement of workplace safety.
