RACE: RECOGNIZE, ASSESS, CONTROL AND EVALUATE HAZARD CONTROLS
The “recognize, assess and control” method of dealing with hazards is actually a specialized form of problem solving. The problem is to anticipate hazards and then take action to prevent injury and illness to people or to control property losses. You may become aware of a hazard in a variety of ways such as voiced as a worker concern, or something noticed during a workplace inspection. It may come to your attention through the Health and Safety Representative or a Joint Health and Safety Committee member, or because of an accident investigation. This module will teach participants to use the hazard recognition, assessment and control principles to deal with all hazards.

An inspection is a planned walk-through of a workplace or worksite designed to help the workplace meet compliance with the law; and more importantly allow for the identification and control of any factors that can cause injury or illness. Routine workplace inspections are therefore a critical component of a good accident, occupational disease and fire prevention program.
An inspection procedure has four components; preparation, inspection, reporting and follow-up. Let us teach you about these fundamental components. We will provide a solid foundation for recognizing, assessing and controlling identified workplace hazards and give you the skills you need to effectively inspect the workplace.
Who Should Attend: Managers/Supervisors, Committee Members, Health and Safety Reps.
