Risk assessment leads to a safer work environment which can save lives.
The main purpose of risk assessment is to know which worksite hazards should be controlled first based on the danger it poses to your employees. Controlling the most dangerous hazards first will help keep your employees safe.
Risk assessment is important because it gives you more knowledge about the risks on your worksite. Not only does it encourage you to identify more hazards on the site, but it allows you to control those hazards more effectively.
There are several different types of risk assessment including qualitative, quantitative, generic, site-specific, and dynamic risk assessments. The type of risk assessment found in the training is a robust quantitative risk assessment as it is the most effective and least biased type of risk assessment.
A job hazard analysis deals primarily with identifying hazards while a risk assessment deals more with assessing the overall danger that those hazards pose to employees.
Risk assessments are performed by the employer/supervisor, or a qualified employee chosen by the employer to carry out the assessment. Risk assessments can also be performed by a risk management team (required in Canada).
