    • Hazard/Risk Register in Excel, PDF & Word


    A hazard register is a high level listing of activities at a workplace, site or company, an assessment of the risk and a summary of the means by which they will be controlled. Developing a Hazard Register is the first step in the hazard management process for a business or project. It should also be reviewed before a large project commences and reviewed regularly to ensure it reflects the current scope of activities and latest standards/controls. It is used to determining which hazards will require a SWMS to be developed. To ensure the Hazard Register is being kept up to date, you must report any new hazard so that it is entered and analysed. A hazard Register shall:
    • Identify all activities undertaken on the project or in the business
    • Identify all hazards associated with each activity inclusive of plant, chemicals & manual handling
    • Assess the risk level associated with each hazard
    • Nominate the requirements to consider i.e.  documents, client documents & legislation/standards
    The Hazard Register is used to define which elements of the workforce require knowledge of specific procedures and work instructions to ensure the critical elements of the systems and required work practices are communicated to the people that matter. The system also forms a closed loop through defined revision practices such as workplace inspection, system auditing and incident investigation that feed back into the Hazard Register to ensure continuous improvement of the process. Types of fields usually found in a register include:
    • Activity – the tasks that is to be performed on the project/contract
    • Hazard – Lists all the potential hazards associated with the activity
    • Mechanism/Pathway of Harm – Identifies how can the hazard cause harm
    • Impact – What is the potential harm/consequences caused by the hazard
    • Control measures in place – What things are already in place to prevent the hazard from causing harm
    • Risk Rating
    • Likelihood (L): using the risk level matrix rate the likelihood of the harm occurring (rate from 1-5)
    • Consequence (C): using the same matrix rate the potential consequence that could occur (rate from 1-5)
    • Risk Level (R): using the same matrix plot the likelihood versus the consequence to obtain a risk level
    • Frequency of Task - This is expressed as High, Medium or Low.  Where a task is relatively routine (medium to high) there may be less need for a written Pre-Start HRA.  Start Right is always required.  SWMSs are required by law for all high risk activities.
    • Documentation
      • Start Right is the practice to be followed by all workers or pausing and considering possible hazards before undertaking any activity.
      • Pre-Start HRA is a document that sets out site-specific hazards created by a work group before undertaking a medium or high risk activity.
      • Safe Work Method Statement is required for all high risk construction work, which includes electrical work.  It may be generic.

    The purpose of this procedure is to define a optional safe work system for work being performed onsite to ensure a high standard of protection for people, environment and property. This procedure or part of this procedure is to be applied at the discretion of Managers, Superivisors or Health & Safety Representatives where they see a need for strict compliance to procedures. This procedure could also be used as a corrective action to a incident, workplace inspection, training or site specific requirments. This procedure is used to plan and control work, which is considered potentially hazardous, to ensure a common understanding between management, staff, contractor supervisors and contractors who perform the work. The main objectives of the Permit Procedure:
    • Ensure that all work specified by this procedure conducted onsite is conducted in a manner which is safe and complies with all relevant legislation, standards, codes of practice or relevant industry best practice as a minimum;
    • Co-ordinate all works onsite to ensure that work activities requiring a Permit do not impact on adjacent works, that adequate space for a safe work environment is maintained and that there are no conflicting activities in progress;
    • To ensure that the Applicant accepts all responsibilities associated with the safe execution of works for which the Permit is issued, that the work area has been inspected, existing and potential hazards have been identified, and all necessary precautions have been considered before the work is authorised;
    • Ensure that at the completion of the work, the Permit is returned to the Permit Authoriser and that the work site has been left in a safe condition;
    • Ensure that persons undertaking work have appropriate competencies; and
    • Ensure that the Permit Procedure and related documentation is routinely audited for continuous improvement.

Suitable duties are short-term activities taking into account any limitations the injured worker may have while recovering from the injury. The identification of suitable duties is an important step in the injury management process ensuring the prompt, safe and durable return-to-work of an injured worker. These duties assist with the injured worker’s rehabilitation and expedite the recovery process, as the worker maintains a link to the workplace.
