Hazard Analysis and Risk Assessment Project
Be sure to read all of the instructions. There are two documents to be prepared and submitted.
- Following steps 1-11 of the Hazard Analysis and Risk Assessment Guide in the course textbook (pp. 172-177), develop a risk assessment for a serious workplace hazard with which you are familiar, view Appendix 2 found in the OSHA document Job Hazard Analysis to help you select a hazard. Evaluate the hazard and its associated risks, and then complete the Hazard Analysis and Risk Analysis Project form. To complete the Initial Risk Assessment and Post Control Risk Assessment sections, use the following codes based on the Risk Assessment Matrix in Table 9.7 (p. 178) of the textbook:
1 – Catastrophic
2 – Critical
3 – Marginal
4 – NegligibleProbability (Likelihood of Occurrence):
A – Frequent
B – Probable
C – Occasional
D – Remote
E – ImprobableRisk Code:
H – High
S – Serious
M – Medium
L – LowAll sections of the form must be completed. Note that the “Post Control Risk Assessment Measures” section reflects the risk assessment after applying the additional control measures.
- In a separate document of at least one page, explain the reasoning behind how you filled out each section of the form. How would the control measures affect the assessment? You must use at least your textbook for this assignment, and other resources may be used as needed.
Upload both the completed form and the discussion document. Be sure that the discussion document is in APA format with a title page and a reference page and any information from a resource is properly cited in APA Style.
