PART 2 Hazard Identification

This part of the SSWP form deals with hazard identification,risk assessment, and risk control. Normally this will be carried out by the supervisor/foreman and/or self-employed person prior to work starting. Where a site safety officer is employed they should be involved in the process.

  • The Hazards should first be identified by ticking the square boxes in the "Select Hazard" column.
  • The appropriate Controls to eliminate the hazard or reduce the risk should be identified by ticking the
    square boxes in the "Select Control" column.
  • When controls are in place tick the round box. This must be done in conjunction with the workers at the specific work location prior to the work taking place.
  • Similarly, the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and Fire Equipment required, should be selected by
    ticking the square boxes in the PPE/ Fire sections, and when acquired by ticking the round box.

NOTE:
The list of Hazards and Controls depicted in each form is not exhaustive.
Part 2 of the form also contains several blank hazard triangles,each labelled with the word "identify", and several blank control boxes, each labelled with the word "other". As the list of hazards depicted is not exhaustive, where other hazards are identified, these can be written into the blank hazard triangles.

Similarly, as the list of controls depicted is not exhaustive, where other controls are identified, these can be written into the blank control boxes.
