Hazard assessment
From the website of OSHA, I am picking an example of shipyard industry. In performing a hazard
assessment, several sages need to be considered ranging from the collection of information about the
hazards existing in the workplace, reviewing of the records of illnesses and injuries, conducting various
inspections in the workplace from time to time, and many others discussed below;
Identifying controls is another step that is taken into account. Sufficient information exists to assist
employers to examine the options for eliminating the recognized hazards and just before any control is
selected, it is very crucial to ask workers' effort on their effectiveness (Bedi et,.al, 2007).
Additionally, developing and updating a hazard control plan is very crucial. This plan outlines how a
selected control is to be implemented; an efficient plan will be first to address those hazards that are very
serious. Another thing is to select controls; the executives in the shipyard should select those controls that
are the most permanent and very useful. Selecting controls is achieved by taking control of those hazards
that can likely cause deaths or can harm the employees.
Moreover, selection of controls that ensures employees protection during emergencies is essential. An
effective hazard control plan must take into account the worker's protection especially when they are
performing extra duties and during emergencies. For instance, in the shipyard industry, these emergencies
could include fires and natural disasters. Lastly, there is a need to follow up the implemented control and
to ensure that it is efficient and effective. To accomplish this, executives must track the progress
pertaining implementation of the controls, and also they should conduct inspection and evaluation of the
controls once they have identified.
Uses of personal protective equipment for controlling hazards
Personal protective equipment also known as PPE is a specialized tool or clothing that is worn by
employees to minimize contact with hazards that can cause harm and illnesses in the workplace. In this
case, we are considering the shipyard industry, with several hazards such as machinery hazards and
working conditions among many others.
Employees of an industry like shipyard use several types of personal protective equipment for various
reasons for instance; gloves to protect their hands, aprons for protecting their skin and respirators to
protect their respiratory tract from airborne diseases.
