Hazard identification

How to identify hazards in a workplace?

There are many potential hazards that can be present in any workplace. Some of the most common workplace hazards include slips, trips and falls; exposure to harmful substances; and ergonomic issues.

Slips, trips and falls are one of the most common types of workplace accidents. They can occur due to spills, cluttered work areas, poor lighting, or simply because of the nature of the work being done. Slips, trips and falls can lead to serious injuries, including broken bones, concussions, and even death.

Hazard identification is an important part of any safety program. By identifying hazards in the workplace, employees and employers can take steps to control or eliminate them. There are a number of ways to identify hazards, including conducting a hazard assessment, observing work practices and reviewing incident reports.

Conducting a hazard assessment is one of the most effective ways to identify hazards in the workplace. A hazard assessment is a systematic examination of the workplace to identify potential hazards. It should be conducted by a qualified person who is familiar with the particular workplace and the types of hazards that may be present.

Background – When should hazard identification be done?

Hazard identification can be done in a number of ways, depending on the circumstances. Sometimes it can be done during the design and implementation phase of a project, such as when designing a new process or procedure. Other times, it can be done before tasks are undertaken, such as when checking equipment or following processes. Reviewing surroundings before each shift can also help to identify potential hazards.

While tasks are being done, it is important to be aware of changes, abnormal conditions, or sudden emissions. This can help to identify potential hazards before they cause an incident. Inspections, both formal and informal, can also be a useful tool for hazard identification. Supervisors and health and safety committees can also help to identify potential hazards.

To ensure all hazards are found the follow steps should be taken:

  • Look at all aspects of the work and include non-routine activities such as maintenance, repair, or cleaning.
  • Look at the physical work environment, equipment, materials, products, etc. that are used.
  • Include how the tasks are done.
  • Look at injury and incident records.
  • Talk to the workers: they know their job and its hazards best.
  • Include all shifts, and people who work off site either at home, on other job sites, drivers, teleworkers, with clients, etc.
  • Look at the way the work is organized or done (include experience of people doing the work, systems being used, etc).
  • Look at foreseeable unusual conditions (for example: possible impact on hazard control procedures that may be unavailable in an emergency situation, power outage, etc.).
  • Determine whether a product, machine or equipment can be intentionally or unintentionally changed (e.g., a safety guard that could be removed).
  • Review all of the phases of the lifecycle.
  • Examine risks to visitors or the public.
