FREE Safety Webinar on Hazard Assessment & Controls

What is a hazard? How does an organization control a hazard?

A hazard can be defined by many definitions. When referring to workplace health and safety the most common definition is “a hazard is any source of potential damage, harm or adverse health effects on something or someone.” – CCOHS

Saskatchewan Occupational Health & Safety Regulations states: “an occupational health and safety program must include the identification of existing and potential risks to the health & safety of workers at the place of employment and the measures, including procedures to respond to an emergency, that will be taken to reduce, eliminate or control those risks.”

The fundamental principle behind any health & safety program, procedure, or practice should be the control of hazards that can lead to injuries, short- and long-term diseases and sometimes death. Hazards that aren’t controlled have the potential to cause damage to business premises, equipment and goods.  Hazard Assessments and controls help build safe and healthy workplaces.

Injuries and illnesses can cause great emotional and financial hardship to an organization and its workforce. Identifying, assessing and controlling hazards help to alleviate these ramifications. Ask yourself, does my organization have a system in place to identify new and existing hazards? Do they have all the steps in place necessary to protect workers from hazards?

True injury prevention starts and ends here!  By identifying hazards before they cause an injury or damage, you can prevent suffering and the potential for major human and monetary costs.  An effective hazard identification and control program is the key to a healthy and safe workplace.
