Risk Control

Risk Control

Your company shall control all risks to whatever extent is practically possible, once they have been identified. The sequence of implementing controls is as follows:-

  1. Eliminating the hazard.
  2. Substituting the hazard.
  3. Modifying the process.
  4. Isolating the hazard.
  5. Implementing engineering controls.
  6. Using a combination of controls.
  7. Using back up controls, such as personal protective equipment.

Additional requirements :-

  1. See that all controls identified in an investigation are authorised with signed documentation.
  2. Allocate responsibility against each control, to ensure everyone is aware of what is required of them. Any lack of response shall be tracked to the responsible person.
  3. Ensure controls have a time frame allocated to them for completion.
  4. Ensure all employees concerned have received sufficient training, or arrange for retraining, as deemed necessary by the findings of the investigation.


After implementing controls, ensure they are evaluated at a future time. (This is to ensure that the controls have not caused any further hazards, and that they are in fact appropriate to reducing the likelihood of a recurrence of the same event.)

All controls must be formulated in consultation with the employees of the area associated with the risk.
