In order to avoid accidents and injuries in the workplace, you must first know how to accurately identify hazards. Health and safety begins with identifying hazards in the workplace, followed by the classification and prioritisation of anything that could pose a threat to the workforce. Hazards that are overlooked or ignored are those that are usually responsible for the most serious incidents. To identify and proactively address workplace hazards is to lay the foundation for a supremely safe working culture. As with all other aspects of workplace health and safety, the hazard identification process is the collective responsibility of the workforce as a whole – not the duty of one or more senior figures alone.
This professional tutorial has been designed for anyone looking to play a more active role in workplace health and safety management. Explore a wide variety of common workplace hazards, along with the hazard identification process and how to carry out a risk assessment. Study the potential dangers of overlooking or failing to address workplace risk, along with the effects various hazards can have on the health and wellbeing of the workforce..
