1 HEALTH, SAFETY AND RISK CONTENTS: Duty of care Assessing risk Controlling risk “On the spot” risk assessments First Aid Manual handling Dealing with violence Fire safety

2 HEALTH, SAFETY AND RISK DUTY OF CARE Legal Obligation Proof required Owed a duty of care Duty of care breached Harm caused as a direct result of the breach

3 HEALTH, SAFETY AND RISK ASSESSING RISK DEFINITIONS Risk Hazard Hazardous Event Likelihood Consequence Risk= Likelihood x Consequence Risk Assessment

4 HEALTH, SAFETY AND RISK RISK MATRIX CONSEQUENCE: 1. Insignificant 2. Minor 3. Moderate 4. Major 5. Catastrophic

5 HEALTH, SAFETY AND RISK RISK MATRIX LIKELIHOOD: 1. Very Unlikely (1/1,000,000) 2. Unlikely (1/100,000) 3. Fairly Likely (1/10,000) 4. Likely (1/1,000) 5. Very Likely (1/100)

6 HEALTH, SAFETY AND RISK RISK MATRIX UNNACCEPTABLE TOLERABLE 6-10 ADEQUATE 1-5 ACCEPTABLE

14 HEALTH, SAFETY AND RISK CONTROLLING RISK Risk= Likelihood x Consequence A) reduce the LIKELIHOOD of a hazardous event Table Saw likelihood 4 Table Saw consequence 4 Risk- 4x4=16 INSTALL GUARD Likelihood now 1 Consequence still 4 Risk- 4x1=4

15 HEALTH, SAFETY AND RISK CONTROLLING RISK Risk= Likelihood x Consequence B) reduce the CONSEQUENCE of a hazardous event Paint Sprayer likelihood 3 Paint Sprayer consequence 4 Risk- 3x4=12 LESS HARZARDOUS PAINT Likelihood still 3 Consequence now 2 Risk- 3x2=6

16 HEALTH, SAFETY AND RISK CONTROLLING RISK Risk= Likelihood x Consequence C) reduce both LIKELIHOOD and CONSEQUENCE of a hazardous event Paint Sprayer likelihood 3 Paint Sprayer consequence 4 Risk- 3x4=12 LESS HARZARDOUS PAINT Likelihood still 3 Consequence now 2 Risk- 3x2=6 ENCLOSE PAINT PROCESS AND USE ROBOT Likelihood now 2 Consequence now 2 Risk= 2x2=4

17 HEALTH, SAFETY AND RISK HIERARCHY OF RISK CONTROL 1.ELIMINATE the hazard 2.REDUCE the hazard 3.PREVENT CONTACT with the hazard 4.SAFE SYSTEMS OF WORK (SSOW) 5.PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE) MORE EFFECTIVE LESS EFFECTIVE

18 HEALTH, SAFETY AND RISK HIERARCHY OF RISK CONTROL 1.ELIMINATE- Remove the ball 2.REDUCE- Change the ball 3.PREVENT CONTACT- Nets 4.SAFE SYSTEMS OF WORK (SSOW)- Training 5.PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE)- Pads, helmet etc. MORE EFFECTIVE LESS EFFECTIVE If 1 and 2 are not possible, look to implement a combination of 3, 4 and 5 to ensure safety is maximised

19 HEALTH, SAFETY AND RISK CONTROLLING RISK
