Safety First

Safety & Job Pause

  • The HSE’s definition of a risk assessment is: “….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….”

  • I will perform this risk assessment of the job to the best of my ability. I will follow the procedures that are outlined within this assessment and pause the job if something should occur that isn't planned. Report all job pauses to management via phone, text, or email. If you are unable to correct a job pause with the resources on site, contact management immediately.

Risk Assessment

Energy Wheel

  • Starting from the inside out; evaluate the environment, tasks, and systems involved with the job. Next, identify the hazardous energies that need to be controlled within the environment, task and systems. Keep in mind that some systems or task can fall in multiple sections of the energy wheel. The outside of the wheel describes the controls to be used. If the hazards cannot be controlled, Pause The Job!
