Hazard assessments, are a formal process of identifying hazards, evaluating the risk presented by each hazard and controlling those hazards where it is not possible to eliminate them out right. Hazards are controlled in order to reduce the chance of injury to people, damage to property, impact on the environment and interference of normal business operations.
