Why is risk assessment important?

Risk assessments are very important as they form an integral part of an occupational health and safety management plan. They help to:

  • Create awareness of hazards and risk.
  • Identify who may be at risk (e.g., employees, cleaners, visitors, contractors, the public, etc.).
  • Determine whether a control program is required for a particular hazard.
  • Determine if existing control measures are adequate or if more should be done.
  • Prevent injuries or illnesses, especially when done at the design or planning stage.
  • Prioritize hazards and control measures.
  • Meet legal requirements where applicable.

 

The purpose of the Risk Assessment – Principles and Practice is to provide the learner with the skills, knowledge, and understanding of risk assessment and the importance of Health and Safety including risk assessment processes in the workplace. Learners will understand the relationships between hazard and risk as part of an accident and ill health strategy, and apply the hierarchy of controls to control risk to an acceptable level.
