The internationally reputed company is a major construction, mining and power solutions provider with more than 25 locations in India. Their major challenge was working with multiple standards and legal requirements of different stakeholders.

We started with the development of an inhouse standard and guideline which was implemented across the locations.

We customized our scored assessment protocol ‘Protosafe’ as per their requirements and developed a three year plan. The safety performance scorecard provided the required guidelines to the management for improvement. Our recommendations facilitated the actions.
A definite positive trend of improvements observed in the subsequent years.

Some more answers to your questions – FAQ

Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment Study | HIRA Safety

  1. Hazard identification and Risk Assessment study is the starting point of planning and implementing any structured safety management system. Once we have identified hazards and evaluate risks through HIRA, we can start planning for further controls and mitigation measures.
  2. HIRA Training is to be conducted for the persons who participate in HIRA Study.
  3. Furthermore, it must be carried out prior to a particular activity or task being carried out. An effective HIRA process helps to eliminate, reduce or suitably control occupational health & safety risks for the persons involved with (or affected by) the task and activity.
  4. A risk assessment should be reviewed periodically or in case of significant changes in the process or system which may affect the risk level. The periodicity is to be calculated proportionate to the level of risk involved.
  5. Relevant risk assessments should be reviewed following an accident or even an incident. This is required to verify whether the control measures and level of evaluated risk were appropriate or require modification.

Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment | HIRA Safety

The responsibility of conducting HIRA lies entirely with the organisation. It can be done by the company’s internal team or they can appoint external agencies with the relevant knowledge, experience and skills to support the internal team.

Globally, in most of the countries, employers are responsible and accountable for taking reasonable steps to identify workplace hazards and ensure effective control measures to prevent injury or ill health.  So, even if the HIRA process is delegated, it is ultimately the responsibility of the company management to ensure it is effectively managed.

It’s also very important to communicate the hazards associated to the processes and tasks are to be communicated to the relevant people. It’s a good practice to involve the relevant people in the risk assessment process.

Consultivo provides in-house training (both online and on-site) on Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment study for different levels of people.

Courses can be customised as per your industry, locational activities and level of participants.

Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment | HIRA Safety

Risk assessment part of the planning process in an occupational health & safety management system. It is a structured, systematic and detailed evaluation of all potential hazards involving personnel, plant, services and operation methods to ensure that OHS risks are suitably eliminated, reduced or controlled.

The main purpose of risk assessments are:

  • To identify the hazards and evaluate their significance based on the existing safeguards available to control the risks
  • Suggest additional control measures to reduce the risk to an acceptable level
  • Prepare a HIRA Safety Risk Register that will help in continuously monitoring these risks. The risk register is a dynamic document which includes further changes.

HIRA in Safety or occupational health & safety management is considered as a cornerstone.

A job, activity or task related hazard analysis is a technique that focuses on job or tasks as a way to identify hazards before they occur.

It focuses on the relationship between the worker, the task, the tools, and the work environment. Ideally, after you identify uncontrolled hazards, you will take steps to eliminate or reduce them to an acceptable risk level.
