We will answer any question specifically for you for only
INSTRUCTOR NOTE:Please view the Risk Assessment video prior to beginning this assignment.
Each assessment will vary by student but each must contain, at a minimum, the completed information requested in each form. Additional information may include video, audio, photograph, sketches, etc., to better demonstrate the information provided in the assessment.
Core Assessment Assignments
Part 1: Using the attached Risk Assessment (docx) and Risk Assessment Download Risk Assessment (pdf) form provided, obtain permission from the appropriate authority and conduct a risk assessment of a local business, institution, organization, or corporation.
Risk Assessment form
Select an industry or type of workplace e.g. manufacturing, auto repair, restaurant, or other service facility, etc., and complete a risk assessment.
Examine the workplace, sketch and photograph any identified Hazards such as wet/slippery floors; uneven pavement or walkways; loose or missing railing or banisters, etc. Choose the top 3 or 4 Risks (in your opinion) and include them on your Worksheet.
Apply the Risk Assessment Chart to each of the identified Risks and assess them.
Identify ways to eliminate, minimize, or otherwise control the identified risks on the Risk Assessment form.
Spot the Hazard
Assess the Risk
Make the Changes
A hazard is anything that could potentially hurt you or someone else
Work out how likely it is that the hazard will hurt someone and how badly they could be hurt
Eliminate, substitute, isolate, add safeguards, use safest way, use protective equipment
List the hazards
Describe the risks
Suggest ways to control the risks
STEP 1: INFORMATION
Gather information about each hazard identified.
Think about how many people are likely to be exposed to each hazard and for how long.
You need to take into account the different situations/conditions that may exist in your workplace that may increase the likelihood, such as a change to operations, inspection, cleaning, maintenance, servicing and repair, new or inexperienced staff.
Who will be exposed to the hazard and for how long?
STEP 3: CONSEQUENCES
Use the information to assess the consequences of each hazard.
Major injuries (significant long term effects)
Minor injuries (usually requiring several days off work)
Negligible injuries (maybe first aid)
What will the consequences be if the hazard to health actually causes AN Injury or harm to health?
STEP 4: RATING THE RISK
Use the risk table on the next page to work out the risk associated with each hazard.
How do you rate this risk?
Risk Assessment Chart
RISK RATING TABLE (adapted from Australian/New Zealand Standard 4360:1995 – Risk Management)

CONSEQUENCE of any injuries or harm to health
Insignificant e.g. no injuries
Minor e.g. first aid onsite only
Moderate e.g. medical treatment
Major e.g. extensive injuries
Catastrophic e.g. fatalities
