hazard assessment
Hazard Assessment
  • Train field Supervisors to be qualified to conduct Hazard Assessments in order to determine levels of risk, and to establish an ongoing safety management plan.
  • Supervisors review the Hazard Assessment with all workers affected by it, including specific control measures.
  • Update the Hazard Assessment as the work scope changes:
    • Below Grade
    • Above grade
