Recognizing Hazards

and Reducing Risk

What We Teach

Safety begins with hazard recognition: What can hurt me? But as important as it is to going home alive and well at the end of every day, recognizing the hazard is only half of the story. Answering the question, What do I do to keep that hazard from hurting me? Is what keeps someone safe.

In four hours, the on-line or in person workshop, Recognizing Hazards and Reducing Risk, teaches practical techniques for anyone to identify the hazards most likely to harm them at work:

  • The Injury Triangle: What makes something harmful to me.
  • TIE: Three places to look for what can harm me.
  • Warning Flags: What to look for that’s most likely to harm me.

But in order to be safe, things must be done to keep from being harmed from the hazards that have been identified. That’s reducing risk, and what’s taught to do that are:

  • Zero Risk: Knowing the difference between an acceptable risk – and unacceptable risk.
  • Stopping the Job: The one way to be sure nobody gets hurt.
  • SORRY: The best way to intervene when it’s somebody else is taking too much risk.

Finally, understanding The Case For Safety – the real reason why safety always comes first – will guarantee that people do the right things to recognize hazards and reduce risk.

Teaching Methodology

Recognizing Hazards and Reducing Risk utilizes video, case studies and live on line polling software. Making the course practical and real for the audience, the course incorporates the hazard recognition processes used by the client, specific hazards found in the client’s operations, and the client injury history.
