Improving hazard awareness amongst the workforce

All individuals working on site should be aware of any potential risks or hazards.

This increased awareness is vital in safeguarding your workforce, to provide a safer working environment and reduce the potential for accidents to occur.

Below is an example of how sites can improve hazard awareness on site:

  • An up to date video walk through of the actual live site was produced and updated monthly;
  • Potential hazards were shown that had been specifically set up in a controlled environment;
  • The participant had to identify hazardous situations, pause the video, record the hazard noted and suggest action to be taken;
  • A score was applied, as part of the individual’s overall safety assessment.
