The Government of Saskatchewan is committed to ensuring workplace health, safety and wellness. Hazard identification, and the steps taken to minimize the risks associated, are a critical component to working safely. The Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment Guidelines provides a basis for hazard control.
The guidelines include the following:
- The formal process for the evaluation of hazards, using a system based approach.
- A Hazard Identification and Assessment Worksheet.
- A risk matrix and methodology for risk assessments.
Please ensure you use the guidelines when conducting a hazard assessment, assisting with job hazard analysis, as a supporting tool for significant hazardous occurrences and as a method for completing and documenting formal risk assessments.
