  • Definitions:

    Hazard: any source of potential damage, harm or adverse health effect on somneone or something.

    Risk: The possible harm, (injury, illness or death), that may occur when a person is exposed to a hazard

    Risk Control: action taken to elliminate health and safety risks, so far as reasonably practicable, and if that is not possible, action taken to minimise the risk, so far as reasonable practicable. Elminating a hazard will also elliminate any risks associated with that hazard.

    Hierarchy of Control: the order in which risk control measures are to be considered

  • Hierarchy of Control:

    JBS aims to minimise risks to health and safety, by implementing risk control measures in accordance with the Hierarchy of Control.

    • Eliminating the hazard. Elminating a hazard will also elliminate any risks associated with that hazard.

    Where elimination of the risk is not possible, JBS aims to minimise risks, so far as is reasonably practicable, by implementing one or more of the following:

    • Substituting (wholly or partly) the hazard giving rise to the risk with something that gives rise to a lesser risk;

    • Isolating the hazard from any person exposed to it;

    • Implementing engineering controls.

    If a risk then remains, minimising the remaining risk, so far as is reasonably practicable, by implementing:

    • Administrative controls.

    If a risk then remains, minimising the remaining risk, so far as is reasonably practicable, by

    • Ensuring the provision and use of suitable Personal Protective Equipment.
