Hazard ID and Risk Control: the role of the JHSC and when to call the experts

Sherry Snow, Manufacturing Safety Alliance of BC

Do you know how to identify the hazards in your workplace and how to mitigate their risks? In this workshop, we’ll not only define hazards and their classifications but help determine what types of controls need to be put in place as well as risk assessment. Participants will walk away with an overview on the different types of hazard assessments, their application and identify when it’s time to call in the experts for improved workplace safety for a variety of concerns with confined spaces, machine guarding, combustible dust, and Industrial hygiene.
