We are living in a world where we are facing hazards every day and everywhere, the moment you wake up and went to the washroom, start your car drive to work, and work at an office and then come back home, you will bump into thousands of hazards including from slipping and tripping at home or reckless drivers on roads or any of the others depending on the type of work you are involved in. When we look at the industry we can see many dangerous processes going on, there are machines with moving parts, high-temperature procedures, people working at height handling sharp equipment and working in underground tunnels and mines, they are facing many hazards which can cause them near misses, injuries and in extreme cases deaths. Thus there is a need for Hazard Identification & Risk Assessment (HIRA) techniques.

Risk Assessment techniques must be understood in order for careful assessment of risk assessment if you are made responsible for risk assessment in your department you must be able to know what are the primary sources of hazards and how to evaluate those hazard by grading of likelihood and severity.

You don’t need to be an expert level health and safety professional in order to carry out this job, however, you must be aware of HIRA which you will study in this course.
