Risk management is the process of finding out what may cause an injury, deciding what may happen as a result, and doing something about it.
The steps of risk management are:
Identify the hazards to workplace health and safety arising from work activities Assess the risks Determine and implement control measures to reduce risk Monitor and review the effectiveness of the control measures
Prior to commencing work, all hazards related to the work tasks should be identified. The selection of the appropriate work procedure(s) will depend on the type of work procedure(s) and hazards involved. Regular safety inspections will also identify hazards and ensure that control measures are in place.
Risk assessment allows appropriate control measures to be developed. Once hazards have been identified, they should be assessed in terms of their potential to do harm. To assess risk, consideration should be given to probability and consequences. SEE RISK ASSESSMENT MODEL.
Risk control is the process of eliminating or reducing risk factors. Control measures should be chosen and implemented to eliminate or reduce risk as far as practicable. When deciding on the most appropriate measures to use, practicality and acceptance of the control measures should be considered. Safe Working Procedures will be developed for all high – medium risk hazards.
MONITOR AND REVIEW CONTROL MEASURES
The risk identification, assessment and control process requires regular monitoring to ensure the implemented control measures perform as originally intended and continue to prevent or adequately control the risk of injury or incident. Control measures should also be checked carefully to ensure that new hazards are not created, directly or indirectly, by the original control measures.

K-LINE INDUSTRIES RISK ASSESSMENT
REVISED RISK SCORE
Crushing – when adjusting and cleaning, as machine may drop without warning
Adjusting & cleaning must only be done when machine is lowered or in transport position and only after all chains and bolts have been checked for tightness & wear in the lower position. Ensure jack is installed correctly & jack receives regular maintenance. Keep feet and body clear when operating. Ensure no personnel are between tractor & harrow bar when hitching to tractor. Machine must be lowered into working position using suitable lifting equipment before priming is effected by slightly loosening fitting/s into cylinders and operating tractor hydraulics to achieve full uninterrupted travel of cylinder several times. Then retighten hydraulic tine fittings.
Crushing - improper use of jack
Crushing - when hitching tractor
Crushing - prior to priming hydraulic system, as machine may drop without warning
Sudden lift of drawbar causing severe injury, if machine becomes unhitched Penetration of oil - broken or badly maintained hydraulic lines Rupture of oil lines by over pressure when machine comes to sudden stop before
Ensure all three jacks are correctly positioned and taking weight before removing drawbar pin. Stickers warn operator.
Maintain regular checks on hydraulic system for wear & check all fittings are secure.
Ensure tractor oil flow is limited to reduce falling speed or do not interrupt machine falling until machine is fully in lowered position
fully lowered to working position
Collision – hydraulics accidentally lowered
Safety pins must be put in place as soon as machine is put in transport position and if travelling on public roads to disconnect hydraulics from tractor.
when machine is being operated in transport
ALL HAZARDS AND RISKS ARE CONTROLLED THROUGH SAFE WORKING PROCEDURES AND ADEQUATE SIGNAGE
