Hazard Identification , Risk Assessment and Risk Control ( HIRARC )

HIRARC

We need to know about OSH because:

  • It is a requirement under the law (OSHA and its Regulations);
  • We need to make provisions for securing the safety, health and welfare of our colleagues;
  • We need to make provisions for protecting our clients against risks to safety or health in connection with our trade and activities.

In order for us to achieve the objectives of OSH we need to look into HIRARC which is the basis of occupational safety and health. HIRARC is a compound word which is made up of three consecutive activities running one after the other. The activities consist of Hazard Indentification, Risk Assessment andRisk Control. Hazard indentification is the recognising of things which may cause injury or harm to a person. Risk assessment is the looking at the possibility of injury or harm occuring to a person if exposed to a hazard. The introduction of measures which will eliminate or reduce the risk of a person being exposed to a harzard is known as Risk control.

  • We need to know about HIRARC because:
  • it is the core business of all OSH personnel, safety committee members, supervisors…etc.
  • it is a DIRECTIVE from the Chief Secretary of the government service to all government departments and agencies through its letter of directive: UPTM 159/267/50 Klt.4 dated 20th of August 2004.
  • Before the proccess of identifying any hazards begin, it is necessary to know how to classify what is hazard, risk and danger.
  • Hazard – anything that can cause harm.
  • Risk – a probability of harm actually being done.
  • Danger – the relative exposure to a hazard.

Hazards can be sub-classified into health or safety hazards.

Presence of a health and safety policy that is communicated to staff
Health & safety consultation
Management commitment to process
Allocation of responsibilities and accountability for health and safety matters
Controls for suppliers, sub-contractors & purchasing
Hazard identification, evaluation & control
Provision of information and training for staff
Incident recording, investigation, analysis and review
Measuring and evaluating workplace health and safety performance.
Many organisations undertake these audits on an annual basis.
These OHSMS audits can be undertaken by appropriately trained internal staff or by an external third party such as AI&OHS Consultants.

Akta keselamatan dan kesihatan pekerjaan 1994

Posted by on Mar 25, 2013 in Information, oshe, OSHE tutorial and note | Comments Off on Akta keselamatan dan kesihatan pekerjaan 1994

Akta keselamatan dan kesihatan pekerjaan 1994

Perundangan baru keselamatan dan Kesihatan Pekerjaan diperbuat pada tahun 1994. Akta Keselamatan dan Kesihatan Pekerjaan 1994 (Akta 514) telah mendapat kelulusan parlimen pada tahun 1993 dan diwartakan pada Februari 1994. Perundangan ini diperbuat kerana memandangkan Akta Kilang dan Jentera 1967 hanya meliputi keselamatan dan kesihatan pekerjaan sektor perkilangan, perlombongan dan pengkuarian dan pembinaan yang mana keselamatan dan kesihatan pekerja di sektor industri-industri lain tidak diliputi. Pekerja-pekerja yang terlibat di bawah Akta Kilang dan Jentera 1967 hanyalah 24% daripada jumlah tenaga kerja manakala Akta Keselamatan dan Kesihatan Pekerjaan 1994 merangkumi sejumlah 90% daripada tenaga kerja dan hanya pengecualian pekerjaan atas kapal dan angkatan tentera.
