Health and safety hazards are not always obvious. It is important to learn to recognize potential hazards, document them, and eliminate them as soon as possible.
The process for hazard recognition involves the following:
- Identifying all potential hazards in and on the property of the workplace
- Identifying the potential for adverse effects which may result for leaving these hazards uncorrected.
- Determining the likelihood of people being harmed or affected by exposure to these hazards.
