Hazard Identification Form

This General Hazard Identification Form helps you to evaluate potential risks (e.g noise, manual handling, excavation, etc.) noted within the work premises. Define the nature of work and choose the protective equipment available and required to protect the workers from harm. Continue with identifying the hazards present. Capture photo evidence of the situation or object that may lead to serious problems to employees. You can assign a task to a supervisor for review and instant resolution. Add other risks which are not registered on the template. Finish the audit by affirming some observations and rate the overall evaluation if the worksite is secure or not. Use Lumiform’s Analytics feature to track improvements in safety. Examine these data to create better safety plans and strategies for your organisation.

PLANT AND MACHINERY:Is the plant work area outlined away from other businesses?Are Operators qualified/licensed to work this type of equipment?

ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS:Is there potential to clear pollutants to drain’s / marine environment/waterway’s / ground/atmosphere; Vibration/noise emission exceeding the project perimeter; formation of dust or disposal of dangerous waste?

VIBRATION:Consider the requirement for vibration monitoring from the demolition process, particularly when working near heritage type buildings.

CUSTOMER AND SURROUNDING PROPERTY:Consider the possible risk to neighbours’ property and the potential damage to customer property nearby.
