Risk Assessment Methodology
Risk Assessment Methodology is an exclusive approach with a core emphasis on risk management and enhancing safety in different types of industries. This is the method that has its unique benefits in gaining a quantitative evaluation of potential risks and analyzing the risk levels to be within the accepted limits. In cases where the risks are unacceptable, the methodology will have evaluations and suggested risk control measures.
Hazard Identification Study (HAZID) is a brainstorming, systematic, and documented process useful in identifying and assessing hazards in the workplace.
