Hazard management is a crucial piece to the Environmental Health and Safety Management System (EHSMS) in any workplace. By managing hazards in the workplace, the chance of loss, injury, or harm to people, equipment, materials, and environment is reduced.
1. Do a position level hazard assessment based on job tasks to identify the hazards in the workplace.
2. Identify the frequency and severity of an injury occurring because of the hazard using the MRU risk matrix.
3. Add the frequency and severity to determine the risk of injury surrounding the task you are doing to decide whether the risk is accepted.
Position level hazard assessments should be done between supervisor and employee on an annual basis, signed and recorded
1. Do a field level hazard assessment each day if your tasks will be changing throughout the day.
