Risk Assessment

A Health and Safety Risk Assessment is indeed a fundamental requirement under the Occupational Health & Safety Act (OHSA) to ensure workplace safety and compliance. At OHSISA, we understand the critical importance of conducting thorough and regular risk assessments to protect both employees and the business as a whole.

Our team of highly trained risk assessors follows well-defined protocols and industry best practices to systematically examine risk factors within the workplace. Here's how our process typically works:

Identification of Hazards: We begin by identifying potential hazards present in the workplace environment. This involves a comprehensive evaluation of all aspects of the work environment, including physical conditions, equipment, processes, and human factors.

Assessment of Risks: Once hazards are identified, we assess the level of risk associated with each hazard. This involves considering factors such as the likelihood of occurrence and the potential severity of harm that could result.

Prioritization of Risks: Risks are then prioritized based on their level of severity and likelihood of occurrence. This helps to focus attention and resources on addressing the most significant risks first.

Implementation of Control Measures: OHSISA works closely with businesses to develop and implement effective control measures to mitigate identified risks. This may involve engineering controls, administrative controls, and/or the use of personal protective equipment (PPE).

Regular Monitoring and Review: Our risk assessors ensure that risk assessments are conducted on a regular basis and are kept up-to-date. This includes monitoring changes in the workplace environment and reviewing the effectiveness of control measures to ensure ongoing compliance with OHSA requirements.

By working with OHSISA for your risk assessment needs, businesses can rest assured that they are taking proactive steps to protect the health and safety of their employees while also maintaining compliance with regulatory standards. Our systematic approach and commitment to excellence ensure that potential risks are identified and addressed in a timely and effective manner.
