A hazard review is a process of identifying potential hazards in your workplace.

Risk Review or a Risk assessment is a formal assessment of that hazard and how likely it is to result in actual harm.

The process is:-

  • Identify hazards
  • Risk assess so you can prioritise which ones need attention first
  • You fix the problem, or take action to reduce the risk

Simple example to illustrate stages:

  • Hazard: We spot a loose corner on a carpet
  • Risk: Someone could trip and injure themselves
  • Immediate action:. We tape it down as a temporary measure, this minimises the risk
  • Fixing the problem: Tradesman fixes the loose carpet, this eliminates the risk
