Formal Hazard Assessment and Control (Canada) Mobile App
The Formal Hazard Assessment and Control app is a risk assessment form that allows the user to put together a list of tasks, associated hazard identification of risks with those tasks, and a three point scale that evaluates the severity of the risk, the likelihood of the risk occurring, and uses that to perform a hazard analysis, by calculating the severity of the risk coupled with the likelihood that it occurs.
How does it work?
Mitigation strategies, such as the use of personal protective equipment (PPE), engineering to prevent risk, etc., can be listed as controls. Ultimately, this formal safety assessment is able to increase the safety and well being of a company's employees and workers by making them aware of job hazards, and knowing how to prevent said hazards from manifesting into problems. Risk management is important for any business, and this form can make up an important part of a company's occupational health and safety program.
