A systematic approach to finding and fixing hazards is a proactive, ongoing process to identify and control sources of potential injuries or illnesses. This means establishing procedures to collect and review information about known or potential hazards in the workplace, investigating the root cause of those hazards, and prioritizing hazard controls. Identifying and correcting these hazards before someone gets hurt ensures that workers go home to their families safe and sound after every shift.
Here are a few ways you can find and fix hazards. Pick the one that works best for you:
- Spotlight hazards and controls
- Create challenges, contests, and competitions
- Evaluate safety and health processes and systems
- Conduct analyses to identify hazards
