Risk Assessment: Types

There are three pillars that support a Risk Management Programme:

a. Hazard Identification Risk Assessment (HIRA):

The Hazard Identification Risk Assessment is a process of identifying the safety hazards (moving machinery, working at heights, stacking, confined spaces, lifting equipment, welding, etc.) in the working environment and which employees are exposed to those safety hazards and what their raw risk profile is when taking into account the probability and severity of exposure to the safety hazard. Current control measures implemented to reduce the raw risk profile is taken into account and weighed up to determine the residual risk ranking and additional control measures that are required to mitigate exposure to the safety hazards.
The HIRA should be recorded and reviewed on a regular basis or whenever there is a change in the process, procedures or when an incident or accident occurs.

InDuna Risk Management assists clients by conducting the Hazard Identification Risk Assessment and recommends the best system of control to mitigate the risks identified.

b. Baseline Health Risk Assessment (BHRA):

The Baseline Health Risk Assessment is a process of identifying the health hazards (physical stressors, chemical stressors, biological stressors, etc.) in the working environment and which employees are exposed as well as the frequency of exposure to those health hazards and what their raw risk profile is when taking into account the probability and severity of exposure to the health hazard. Current control measures implemented to reduce the raw risk profile is taken into account and weighed up to determine the residual risk ranking and additional control measures that are required to mitigate exposure to the health hazards.
The BHRA should be recorded and reviewed on a regular basis or whenever there is a change in the product, process, procedures or when a health related incident or accident occurs.

InDuna Risk Management assists clients by conducting the Baseline Health Risk Assessment for the Mining Sector and facilitating it for the Industrial Sector and recommends the best system of control to mitigate the risks identified.

c. Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA):

The Environmental Impact Assessment is a process of identifying the environmental hazards (effluents, emissions, waste, noise, development, mining, etc.) in the operational area and the impact that such hazards could have on the environment and what their raw risk profile is when taking into account the probability and severity of potential impact of the environmental hazards. Current control measures implemented to reduce the raw risk profile is taken into account and weighed up to determine the residual risk ranking and additional control measures that is required to mitigate the impact of the environmental hazards.
The EIA should be recorded and reviewed on a regular basis or whenever there is a change in the process, procedures or when a health related incident or accident occurs.

InDuna Risk Management assists clients by facilitating the Environmental Noise Assessments and Stack Emission Monitoring and by conducting the Dustfall Monitoring and Surface and Groundwater Quality Monitoring for the Environmental Impact Assessment and recommends the best system of control to mitigate the risks identified.
