OHSAS 18001: 2007 Hazard Identification, Risk Assessment & Control

What's In It For Me

  • To identify hazards with respect to tasks and to assess the risks involved for selected areas within the company through practical exercise.
  • To fully understanding the methodology involved in hazard identification and risk management.
  • To compile action plan and follow-up on effectiveness.

Course Overview

A comprehensive safety management system (SMS) usually requires the company's management to carry out an analysis of the entire operation and each workplace to identify hazards and associated risks. Depending on the size and complexity of the company's business process, appropriate hazard identification methods shall be selected to maximise effectiveness of this exercise. 
A proper risk assessment, however, is not complete without the adequate knowledge of analysing and assessing the risks through accepted methodology. 
This comprehensive course has been designed to meet the requirement of most SMS (including OHSAS 18001, CP79) in addressing risk management. It covers in detail the methodology involved in identifying hazards, analysing and assessing risks, planning for action and management review for continual improvement.
