COVID-19: HIRA – Strategy For Leaders (Hazard Identification & Risk Assessment)
The course covers strategic level information to demonstrate the ability to conduct a risk assessment in the workplace. The course will enable the delegates – who typically operates at management, leadership, workplace owner, health and safety compliance officer and safety representative levels – to prepare and conduct a risk assessment as well as, initiate remedial actions for hazards identified and risks assessed. Risk assessment is essential to any organisation or business, it is a legal requirement stipulated by the Occupational Health and Safety Act as well as the Mine Health and Safety Act. HIRA promotes a pro-active approach towards effective Health and Safety Management, serving as a valuable tool to the organisation in order to elevate the standard(s) of safety, meeting legal compliance and protecting persons from the hazards that they may potentially be exposed to Hazard Identification and Risk Analysis (HIRA) is a collective term that encompasses all activities involved in identifying hazards and evaluating risk at facilities, throughout their life cycle, to make certain that risks to employees, the public, or the environment are consistently controlled within the organization’s risk tolerance. These studies typically address three main risk questions to a level of detail commensurate with analysis objectives, life cycle stage, available information, and resources. A HIRA is a risk assessment tool that can be used to assess which hazards pose the greatest risk in terms of how likely they are to occur and how great their potential impact may be. It is not intended to be used as a prediction tool to determine which hazard will cause the next emergency.
