Hazard Management – Assessment

This process of determining whether a hazard is significant and developing controls is called Hazard Assessment, and it should be carried out separately for a number of reasons. By the end of this chapter we will need to:

• Transfer all hazards from the Hazard ID form to the Hazard Register template
• Annotate if a hazard is significant by:

o Within your task, job, process, trade or industry determine if this hazard has resulted in Serious Harm
o Check the Department of Labour www.osh.govt.nz/order/catalogue and http://www.acc.co.nz/index.htm
o Using MSDS
o Call in external consultants e.g. Safety Hub
