How do I conduct a hazard assessment and develop a hazard control plan?

February 06, 20231 min read

The process for conducting a hazard assessment and developing a hazard control plan can vary depending on the specific workplace and industry. However, there are some general steps that can be followed:

Identify potential hazards: Take a close look at the workplace and identify any potential hazards that could cause harm to workers.

Assess the risks: Determine the likelihood and severity of the harm that could result from each hazard. This can involve gathering information on injury statistics, consulting with workers, and reviewing relevant regulations and standards.

Develop control measures: Determine what can be done to eliminate or reduce each hazard, such as engineering controls, administrative controls, or personal protective equipment (PPE).

Implement the control measures: Put the identified control measures into place and make sure they are effective.

Monitor and evaluate: Regularly review the hazard control plan and make adjustments as needed. Keep records of all assessments, control measures, and evaluations.

To ensure the hazard assessment and control plan are comprehensive and effective, it may be useful to involve a team of employees, including workers, supervisors, and safety professionals, in the process. Training on the hazard assessment and control plan should also be provided to all employees. WorkSafeBC provides resources and guidance on conducting hazard assessments and developing hazard control plans, which can be a useful starting point for businesses.
