Hazard Recognition: Identifying the Hidden Dangers in Your Workplace

 

Learn how to conduct a risk assessment to aid in identifying hidden hazards and avoid cost of an injury - directly and indirectly.

One of the most difficult tasks of any production supervisor, department manager, safety professional, HR professional, shop floor associate is to identify what an occupational hazard looks like. The process of defining a hazard compared to a risk can be confusing, conflicting and dangerous to the well-being of associates at your worksite if it is not understood and if no process exists. Not able to identify hidden hazards places associates at risk of injuries ranging from basic first aid to potential fatality. Understanding how to search for, compute and communicate such hazards is essential for any workplace organization to provide a work free zone - beyond regulatory requirement to meet OSHA standards. Having risk assessments to aid in identifying hidden hazards is a business requirement to avoid cost of an injury - directly and indirectly. This topic clarifies the different types of hazards in the workplace and the potential penalties associated with them and showcases the hazard identification and risk assessment process that can be utilized to comply with the General Duty Clause of the OSH Act - which requires employers to provide a workplace free of recognized hazards. A review of OSHA's annual Top 10 List of Most Frequently Cited Violations will be revealed and described in detail as a means of lessons learned for employers and employees to audit their work area(s). This material will also offer examples of a HIRA of how a specific hazard was identified and risk was calculated to determine severity. This tool can be used to comply with the OSH Act as well as protect employees and business from unnecessary pain and agony.
