Hazard and Risk Identification Principles


Hazard and risk source identification are key steps in risk management.

Hazards and risk sources that are not identified can lead to the risks those hazards present not being well controlled, or not be controlled at all, if they eventuate.

Robust identification and initial appreciation of hazards and risks are therefore critical steps in comprehensive and effective risk management processes.
