How to perform an environmental hazards risk assessment?
When conducting an environmental hazards risk assessment, there are a few key steps that should be followed in order to ensure accuracy and completeness. First, identify all of the potential hazards that could affect the area in question. This step should take into account both natural and man-made hazards.
Once all potential hazards have been identified, the next step is to assess the likelihood of each hazard occurring. This step should consider both the probability of the hazard occurring and the potential consequences if it does occur. Finally, once the likelihood of each hazard has been assessed, a decision can be made about whether or not to take action to mitigate the risk.
