Culture is the atmosphere created by those beliefs, attitudes, etc. Risk is defined as the possibility that an uncertain event or condition may occur that would negatively impact an organization. Key to this definition ro that the occurrence of the event or condition probability and severity of loss linked to hazards is uncertain, implying that it has not 1219 yet. Also, risk is the measure of the 1216 loss from a given hazard or group of hazards, usually estimated as the combination of the likelihood probability and consequences severity of the loss.
Risk management is defined as a continuous process of coordinated activities focused on identifying, assessing, and controlling risks arising from operational factors and making decisions that balance risk cost with operational benefits. The Department is being proactive when trying to manage the risk event and its impacts through risk management.
1196 following terms are core elements of risk management:. A JHA also known as a Job Safety Analysis JSA is a procedure that helps integrate accepted safety and health principles and practices into a particular task or job operation. The JHA is a technique that focuses on the relationship between the worker, the task, the tools, and the work environment. Once the potential hazards of a 112196 task or job operation are identified, controls are put into place to reduce risks associated with the hazards.
Operational Risk Management see below is required in conjunction with a JHA when the operation includes variables that can affect the level of risk associated with the operation weather, lighting, glare, etc. Generally, probability is assessed as: Generally, severity is assessed as: Residual risk is defined as the risk associated with a hazard that remains after implementing all planned counter measures or controls to eliminate, reduce, or control the impact of the hazard.
The residual risk may be equal to the initial risk, especially when the initial risk was so low that the hazard did not warrant expenditure of resources to mitigate. Inspection is defined as a comprehensive survey of all or part of a workplace in order to detect safety and health hazards. Safety and Health Program Assessment. A safety and health program assessment is defined as the identification, collection, analysis, recording, and reporting of program effectiveness-related data.
