Hazard Identification, Assessment and Control
Hazards exist in every workplace, but how do you know which ones have the most potential to harm workers?
By identifying hazards at your workplace, you will be better prepared to control or eliminate them and prevent
accidents, injuries, property damage and downtime. After all, you can't fix problems you don't know about.
This three-module course outlines proven techniques for identifying hazards, assessing risks and controlling
hazards for everyday situations. Accurately identifying, assessing, and controlling hazards is an essential
part of a properly functioning occupational health and safety program. This course will help employers,
managers and members of health and safety committees improve their health and safety performance.
They will learn effective and proven methods of hazard identification, assessment, and control. The three
modules of this course cover essential topics such as hazard mapping, workplace inspections, risk assessment
techniques, and the hierarchy of controls. Please note that this course does not cover complex hazard and risk
assessment methods used for identifying hazards in the design stages of a plant, system or process.
