    Hazard Identification and Risk Management

    Course Summary
    All workplace activities have or pose a threat to workers in the establishment.
    No matter who you are or what you are doing, there is a possibility of injury or harm to yourself, others, or the surrounding environment.
    It is important, therefore, for workers to have a comprehensive understanding of what a hazard is, the different categories of hazards in the workplace and/or in their surrounding environment, the likelihood and severity of the hazards at hand, the adequate controls for the hazard, and the review process.
    Workers must also learn of their great involvement in the Risk Assessment Process to implement the controls effectively and improve the efficacy of the Health and Safety Management System overall.
    Successful risk management is an integral part of your organization’s strategy and a critical dimension of good management.
    This is where you can begin incorporating risk management activities into operations and strategies.
    The purpose of risk management training is to raise awareness of risk management concepts and mechanisms, to enable participants to identify and manage risks in their own units, and to strengthen project management through adequate forward planning of potential risks.
    Effective risk management helps ensure better decisions are made that will protect people, organizations, and reputations.
