Live Webinar: Wednesday, August 12, 2020

1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern / 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Pacific


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: This session will provide attendees with an overview of the importance of risk assessments for use in a continual improvement effort to prevent injuries and illnesses in the workplace.


The ultimate goal of safety management systems and programs is to minimize risk and the associated costs of injuries and illnesses in the workplace. To reach this goal, you must identify and assess any risks and hazards to understand their probability of occurring, identify the likely severity of an incident, and develop appropriate corrective measures to reduce or eliminate these risks. Risk assessment is a fundamental tool for safety professionals looking for a systematic approach to identifying, prioritizing, and mitigating workplace hazards.

This risk assessment webinar will assist attendees in determining if their current efforts for identification, assessment and controls are effective. The risk assessment process may vary across organizations, ranging from simple qualitative assessments to complex quantitative analysis with extensive documentation. It is important for each organization to adopt an approach that meets its needs and effectively identifies and controls the risks faced by employees.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Recognize common hazards in the workplace
  • Identify the steps in a risk assessment methodology
  • Quantify both probability and severity variables in a risk matrix
  • Evaluate controls to reduce the risk and related exposures
  • Prioritize corrective actions
