Risk Assessment Methodology

  • Most activities or processes are broken down into a variety of separate tasks. For each task, consider the hazards, the potential harm or negative outcomes and the conditions required for those negative outcomes to occur.

    Whenever assessing the health and safety risks associated with a task, always consider the following primary risk factors.
    • The physical activities required to complete the task e.g. repetitive movement, high force, physical exertion, awkward posture
    • The work environment e.g. lighting, work layout, traffic, thermal comfort, working in isolation
    • The nature of the hazard itself e.g. working with chemicals, microorganisms, radiation, machinery, potentially violent clients
    • The individual workers involved, e.g. level of training, skills, experience, health, age, physical capacity
    A minimum of a Safe Work Procedure should be created for all tasks. Operators need to be deemed competent in all elements of the task they are required to perform.
