Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment

Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (HIRA) is a systematic evaluation of the workplace and/or other activities which identifies the hazards present and gives an estimate of risks involved” in any activity.

Legally it is required that organizations conduct risk assessments and these risk assessments should not just be mere pieces of paper so as to achieve legal compliance but also serve the set objectives, hence it is required that the risk assessments should be “suitable and sufficient”.

Expert help is often required within industrial workplace activity for Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (HIRA Studies) and at TheSafetyMaster™, we excel at this integral ‘Safety First’ service.
The objective of HIRA training is to train staff to identify and contain various activity based workplace hazards and risks within an industrial setting that may have low injury but high frequency and it’s not conducted on non-chemical process/activity that involve work at height, material handling, confined space, permit to work etc. Such an assessment is followed up with extensive documentation of risks and hazards present within an industrial environment, their causes, associated consequences and risk and hazards containment recommendations.
