Migrating from a Hazard to a Risk
How to migrate your hazard register to a risk register for the new Health and Safety at Work Act.
The Health and Safety at Work Act requires organisations to move from a hazard management environment to a risk management environment. The mechanism of controlling hazards (the hierarchy of controls) has been abolished and a new hierarchy of controls for the elimination and reduction of risk has been introduced.
