Hazard Analysis 24-7: A wizard program that asks questions to determine hazards
both per job and department, then rates the hazard and coaches the user to determine
the needed controls. Hundreds of samples are built into the system that allows a
user to select the requirements for controls, such as PPE, Training, and Administration.
From a full workplace hazard assessment to a particular task, your firm can now
easily identify, rate and control the hazards in your workplace. Mitigate your firm’s
liability with this fully supported program.
Physical descriptions are elicited through the process along with procedural steps
involved and the demands upon the worker. Environmental conditions, exposures and
stressors are analyzed for potential hazards or barriers to safety, efficiency and
productivity. The system is preloaded with heights, weights, lengths, postures,
temperatures, etc. so that the user is guided to reasonable conclusions.
Once hazards are analyzed, ratings are established based on exposure, likelihood,
probability and occurrence. The rating of high, medium or low is used to prioritize
the implementation of required controls. Provincial laws require that workplaces
control hazards; reduction of risk means less costs and greater productivity. For
example, an effective housekeeping program in a retail store ensures safe workers,
shoppers and visitors. As the hazard is analyzed, the system identifies the needed
controls based on the hazard factors. The rating system prioritizes the controls
and the tracking system ensures timely implementation of the controls.
There is a great depth to this program and its use can produce the following:
- Workplace Hazard Assessment
- Job Hazard Analysis
- Task Analysis
- Job Descriptions
- Modified Duties for a specific job
- Modified Duties for a specific injury type
- Customized Reports
- Physical Demands Analysis
Services and Solutions
Hazards are recognized by not only their actual potential, but by their suspected
potential to cause injury, illness and property damage. The three sources of hazards
presented in the workplace are human, situational and environmental. The study and
analysis of the sources of hazards provides the opportunity to not only identify
hazards but how to eliminate or best control them. We will complete a walk-through
of the workplace to identify hazards. We will look for actual, potential, and observable
exposures to hazards. An assessment, elimination and control of hazards are important
sections of the overall regulatory approach to workplace safety.
