A hazard is any situation, condition or thing that may be dangerous to the safety or health of workers. A hazard has the potential to cause an injury, illness or loss. Some people think of a hazard as “an accident waiting to happen”. Potential hazards are those that are foreseeable and reasonably likely to occur. The purpose of the hazard assessment is to identify and evaluate those conditions that could lead to workers getting hurt or becoming ill. Injuries and ill health can ruin lives and affect an employer’s business if production is lost, machinery and equipment are damaged, insurance costs increase, or the employer is prosecuted.
The size and scope of the written hazard assessment will vary based on the complexity of the employer’s operations and the extent to which those operations present hazards to workers. The assessment may be only one page long, or may take up several three-ring binders. A single-page assessment is acceptable if it identifies all the existing or potential hazards at the employer’s work site and describes how the hazards will be eliminated or controlled.
