Hazard Recognition – Part 3
Identify Hazards! The following questions should be asked, to help predict what could go wrong and how risks might be controlled:
- Is the site and the job the same as depicted on the prints?
- Are the necessary materials available to perform the work?
- Does everyone have the proper tools to perform the tasks at hand?
- Are there enough workers to handle the job? Have they all had safety training?
- Are environmental conditions such as light, noise and weather a factor?
- Are there too many people in the area to work safely?
- Have other sub’s on the job been notified about hazardous tasks or materials?
Don’t wait for accidents to occur! Think and plan ahead!
