RISK MANAGEMENT

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

IDENTIFYING HAZARDS

Prior to commencing work, all hazards related to the work tasks are to 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

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

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.
