 · Analyze and evaluate the risk associated with that hazard (risk analysis, and risk evaluation). Determine appropriate ways to eliminate the hazard, or control the risk when the hazard cannot be eliminated (risk control). The OSH Answers document on Risk Assessment has details on how to conduct an assessment and establish priorities.

Risk assessment is the process of evaluation of the risks arising from a hazard, taking into account the adequacy of any existing controls and deciding whether or not the risks is acceptable. It is impossible to eliminate all hazards, so the goal is to eliminate and/or control the hazards with critical and high potential risk to the lowest reasonable risk level so as to protect .

Fact Sheet

Conducting plant risk assessments is a proactive way to identify plant related hazards before the plant is introduced into the workplace. Plant risk assessments should consider hazards, risks and controls relevant to various stages of the plant lifecycle that are relevant to the work to be conducted on the site. The stages may include:

The Danger of Crushing Hazards in Construction

There is also machinery on site that can cause a crushing hazard. This is especially true when appropriate guarding is not in place. Sometimes workers may flout the rules and take shortcuts, leading to them being crushed by parts of a machine or a machine may become jammed and workers will remove the guard in an attempt to fix the machinery, resulting in the crushing of some part of their body.

Portable welding equipment is regularly maintained to help minimise the risk of exposures to these hazards. Plant and machines likely to generate excessive heat or sparks are isolated, ventilated and monitored closely.
