HIRA Training | Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment

HIRA Training – Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment or HIRA or Risk Management is a vital part of any proactive Occupational Health & Safety Management System, though relatively few organisations have been able to effectively weave it into their daily processes.

HIRA Training | Hazard identification and risk assessment of significance is the key to the whole system as it is the impact of significant risks that need to be managed. All hazards must be identified in order to determine if they are significant. Significance is determined via the assessment process and this in turn requires that appropriate controls are put in place to reduce this risk exposure to an acceptable level.

The types of risk exposures to be considered include all those that could lead to death, ill health, injury or other loss to humans.

The objective of carrying out HIRA in Safety is to determine whether people are likely to be adversely affected by any of the health & safety hazards. HIRA Trainings make people capable to conduct HIRA effectively.
