Description

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

Task:

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.

Worksheet

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

  1. It is generally recognized that some hazards may be inherent to the workplace, e.g. electrician and electrical shock, construction and potential injury, etc. Therefore, the complete eradication of all risks may not be feasible in every workplace analysis, however the intent of the worksheet is to identify and mitigate/minimize the hazard and reduce risks to the lowest level possible, without significant degraded performance of operations.
  2. To carry out the risk assessment Follow these four steps

STEP 1: INFORMATION

Gather information about each hazard identified.

  1. What information do you have on each hazard?
  2. STEP 2: LIKELIHOOD

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.

Fatality

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)

LIKELIHOOD of Injury or Harm to Health

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

Very likely
