This course is a practical guide about how to do the Identification of Hazards and doing a Risk
Assessment.
What is a risk assessment?
Its is careful examination of what could cause harm to people, so that the company can
determine if enough precautions was taken to prevent harm.

The process is established to estimate the magnitude of a risk, and deciding what to do to
reduce the risk, to a level as low as possible. This is a systematic approach to gather all the
information pertaining to a identified hazard, the evaluation of the resultant outcomes as well
as the identification of controls to either eliminate or reduce the severity of the outcome to a
acceptable level to the company
