Advanced IIPP - Hazard Identification

This is the 3rd of 3 parts of the Advanced IIPP series, each of which will provide you with a deep-dive into the 8 elements required for an effective IIPP. The focus of this seminar includes how to protect your employees from being injured while they are performing the various tasks you are requiring of them. In order to accomplish this, you are responsible for knowing and properly managing these obvious, and sometimes not so obvious risks.

A common "root cause" of workplace injuries is the failure to identify or recognize hazards in the workplace, or hazards which should have been anticipated. One of the most critical elements of an IIPP is being able to effectively identify risks in a proactive, ongoing basis; and properly assess these hazards to determine the best means to protect your employees from injury.

This seminar will explore how to create and maintain an effective hazard identification and corrective process; using extensive resource tools and practical applications for eliminating or reducing these exposures.

Emphasis will be placed on learning more about:

  • Where to locate a number of hazard identification external and internal resources, which will be reviewed to demonstrate there are likely more hazards in your workplace than you might have been aware!
  • How to use this information to assess and prioritize these hazards in order to better understand the potential risks faced by your employees.
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of existing controls to determine whether they continue to provide protection, or whether different controls may be more effective.
  • The importance of properly correcting these hazards, along with the relationship on how these choices could subject your organization, your leadership, and your employees to legal and regulatory actions.
