A Point-of-Work Risk Assessment (POWRA) is an evaluation of the potential risks associated with any given task and the steps that can be taken to minimize those risks. It is used to ensure that the task is completed in a safe and effective manner, by both the employee and employer. This assessment looks at the type of task being performed, the potential hazards associated with the task, the potential exposure to the hazards, and the safety measures needed to protect the employee and anyone else in the vicinity of the task. POWRA is an important part of any workplace safety program and can help reduce the risk of injury and illness in the workplace.
