Risk Assessment HIRA
Hazard Identification and Risk Analysis (HIRA) is a collective term that encompasses all activities involved in identifying hazards and evaluating risk at facilities, throughout their life cycle, to ascertain that risks to employees, the public, or the environment are consistently controlled within the organization's risk tolerance. These studies typically address three main risk questions to a level of detail commensurate with analysis objectives, life cycle stage, available information, and resources.
The three main risk questions are:
- Hazard - What can go wrong?
- Consequences - How bad could it be?
- Likelihood - How often might it happen?
Risk Assessment training is an important step in protecting your workers and your business, as well as complying with the law. It helps you focus on the risks that really matter in your workplace - the ones with the potential to cause harm. Risk assessment training is simply a careful examination of what, in your work, could cause harm to people, so that you can weigh up whether you have taken enough precautions or should do more to prevent harm. Workers and others have a right to be protected from harm caused by a failure to take reasonable control measures.
