What is HIRA: Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment?

HIRA stands for Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment. It’s a systematic process used to identify potential hazards to prevent accidents, injuries, and illness. By Analysing potential risks and implementing appropriate control measures, HIRA helps create a safer work environment and protects the employees from harm!

Objectives of HIRA Study

The Primary objectives of conducting a Hazard Identification & Risk Assessment are to

  • Conduct a thorough evaluation of potential hazards encompassing personnel, equipment, services, and operational procedures.
  • Identify the current proactive measures in place to mitigate the risk due to hazards.
  • Propose additional measures to reduce the risk.
  • Develop a comprehensive risk register to facilitate ongoing monitoring of these risks, promptly identify any changes, and verify the efficacy of implemented controls.

Risks Associated with HIRA can be categorized into various groups, including:

  • Process Risks – Associated with the process itself, like the chance of fire or an explosion.
  • Equipment Risks – These Risks are tied to the tools and machines used, such as the risk of equipment failure.
  • Human Factor Risks – These can be caused by human error, such as the risk of worker making a mistake.


    Steps involved: Our Proactive Approach to HIRA (Hazard identification and risk assessment) in your Workplace:

    Step 1: Identifying the Hazards

    We take a walk around your workplace and focus on things that could potentially cause harm. We pay attention to significant hazards rather than minor issues.

    Step 2: Risk Identification

    We consider who might get hurt because of the hazards we have identified. This could be young or new workers or anyone else at your workplace.

    Step 3: Evaluate Risks and Precautions

    Evaluate the risk and if precautions in place are well enough to prevent any harm. If the risk is high, we need to re-evaluate the precautions until it is minimized. We ensure that we meet legal requirements and consider additional precautions if needed.

    Step 4: Record your Findings

    In your workplace, if you have more than 5 employees, document the significant hazards and conclusion of your assessment. Make sure to inform your employees about those findings.

    Step 5: Review your Assessment

    We Review and update your risk assessment when significant changes occur. A good practice is to conduct an annual assessment to ensure your business is safe.
