Understanding & Conducting Risk Assessments

Assessing risk is an approach to Occupational Health & Safety. Both Federal and Provincial OH&S Legislation requires all employers to assess a variety of situations pertaining to risk in their workplaces. This course will cover when a risk assessment must be completed and will give participants hands-on experience in a variety of methods to conduct risk assessments.

In this course participants will:

  • Learn about the risk assessment process specific to hazard identification.
  • Analyze and evaluate the risk associated with specific hazards and determine appropriate ways to eliminate or control those hazards.
  • Learn in practical terms that a risk assessment is a thorough look at your workplace specific to things that may cause harm to workers.
  • Summarize hazard prioritization and precautionary principles.
  • Learn how to increase awareness of hazards and risks.
  • Learn how to implement controlled measures, by conducting a risk assessment.
  • Discuss the requirements, who is responsible and the consequences of non-compliance.
