Risk Assessment and Management of Health Risks at the Workplace
February 20 - 21, 2010
Pre-Conference Workshops

Introduction

Identification and evaluation of hazards in order to assess risk in the workplace is the foundation of occupational health and safety. The assessment of risk depends on knowing the level of exposure in the workplace, how frequently the worker is exposed, and the risk associated with that level of exposure. Practical hazard identification and risk assessment in the workplace depend on identification of the hazard, how much is present in the workplace, the opportunity that a worker may have to encounter the hazard, controls that are already in place, and availability of personal protection. “Control banding” is presented as a simplified approach suitable for small enterprises and workplaces and non-professionals to approach risk management at the enterprise level, suitable for dealing with most problems that fall within their own area of responsibility and identifying when professional help is required.

Target Audience

Health professionals, planners, managers, supervisors, occupational safety and health officers, loss prevention specialists, human resources specialists. This workshop is not designed for process engineers, hygienists, or safety engineers.

Workshop Objectives

  • List six categories of hazards in the workplace and three general classes of outcomes.
  • List and prioritize on the basis of efficacy seven approaches to control of hazards.
  • Define risk assessment and risk management at the enterprise level and describe their relationship to the Deming Cycle of quality improvement.
  • Design a simple workplace-level risk assessment strategy for a simple workplace exposure.
  • Describe a general risk management approach for this workplace.

Workshop Description

This workshop will begin with an introduction to risk assessment (emphasizing hazard identification) and will proceed with short lectures, discussions, and case presentations. Each participant will be expected to present a problem in hazard identification for discussion by all workshop participants. All participants should come prepared to describe the following for at least one case or situation in their personal experience:

  • Industry, occupation, process, and setting
  • Reason for assessment
  • Suspected hazard or hazard type
  • Sources of information available
  • What you did to assess hazard
