In most construction and heavy industry projects risk injury is also a part of them. Eliminating risk is not easy but controlling and reducing the risk using the standard process and keeping good work practices is possible. Furthermore, we can assume risk as a regular part of completing the job. Risk is with us on every job and every day. The outcome severity and the possibility of an incident occurring can help us to analyze the risk going by the number of times we are exposed to the risk. People have assumed risk daily. Risk acceptance starts on the organizational level and trickles down to the local level. The question often asked is the amount of risk that a contractor and the workers are willing to accept.
One function of management is risk control further there are tools which can aid in keeping the risk at levels that are accepted and understanding the risk. One tool that is commonly used is job safety tool. Risk should be controlled in at the low management level by immediate supervisors and those doing the job. Some workers do not find it important to inform their supervisors about hazards although they are first to know about them. Most investigations of incidents have shown that workers in given occurrences were aware of the hazard existence.
Identifying normal tolerance risk level is done with team members however there are several things that can inhibit this process. In most jobs, decisions and judgment of the supervisors and employees are vital aspects of the hazards of a work area, communication, and assessment of risk. To best understand the work’s nature, the work area, and the health and safety hazards, individuals input on making decisions about the best methods of controlling hazards is needed.
Job safety analysis is a vital part of managing risks in heavy industries.
This is a tool that is used to lower the risk level to the accepted level by enabling members to develop common task understanding, hazards, and procedures linked with task completion. The unresponsive perception, good and bad of tools of job safety as planning tools for those completing the job has results on the quality of information and the levels of participation of involved employees.
There are more aspects which can pressure the management of risk which comprises the work area environment, procedures of work safety, tools and resources that are ready to lower hazards. Risk management requires communicating with stakeholders when working to complete projects. It contains relaying data from one contractor to another which is needed for communication among employees and risk assessment. Finishing the job in a timely manner and with no injuries and within the set budget is the core goal.
