Hazards and Risks
A hazard is an article, substance or situation that has the potential to cause harm or damage.
The key word is potential. Not all hazards will cause harm all of the time. It depends upon circumstances. Typical workplace hazards include:
- Working at heights.
- Poor lighting
- Manual handling
- Cluttered walkways
In the normal workplace there may be many more hazards.
A risk is the likelihood of harm occurring. The degree of risk is based both on likelihood and severity of outcome.
Everyone talks about the hierarchy of control and how we should completely eliminate hazards. True we should try out best to eliminate hazards so that we can avoid accidents. But in the real world it is very often impossible to eliminate all hazards to avoid accidents. Ok we cannot eliminate but can we then reduce the hazard or more correctly the risk of any hazard down to an acceptable level? Example- a wire on the floor may be a hazard and the associated risk would be a trip or a fall when you trip over the wire. Ideally we should remove the wire but we may need to use it for powering up equipment. Or maybe its used for a vacumn cleaner which is on the move. So instead of eliminiating then can we lower the risk by clearing the room of people or placing warning signs etc.
