In this module, learners will be introduced to the hierarchy of workplace hazard controls as well as hazard analysis explanation and its process. Participants will have practice analyzing jobs tasks in order to identify related hazards and develop safe work procedures which address hazards that cannot be eliminated. Learners will examine, in detail, various types of facilities, equipment, work processes, and situations including but not limited to: safety through design, lighting and ventilation systems, materials handling, basic electrical safety, personal protective equipment, lift trucks, guarding, metalworking and woodworking machines, welding and excavation, blasting, confined space entry, and commercial fleet safety. The relationship between Job, Duty, Task, and Element will be discussed. Learners will be able to define risk assessment and related terms, explain responsibilities for risk assessment and control, and describe an effective risk assessment model. After learning the risk assessment model, learners will be able to quantify and compare risks as well as explain the risk control planning process and be able to apply it in the development of control measures.
