This ebook helps you find out those hidden hazards that have a low probability and high consequence of injury. Low probability hazards are those that may never have caused any injury or problem in a workplace. These hazards never cause problem, therefore are ignored or never identified to begin with.
There are different ways to find out low probability and high consequence hazards by creating a hazard register where in all kinds of hazards can be listed and look to available injury data associated with your industry and do a comparison with what you find out. This book helps you distinguish between toxicity and hazard. There is a tendency to believe that if only small amounts of a chemical are needed to cause poisoning, then the chemical is hazardous. Again, a highly toxic chemical can have a low health hazard if it is used with proper precautions and care. Similarly, a low toxic chemical may have a high health hazard if it is used carelessly. Toxicity of a chemical cannot be changed but the hazard it presents can be controlled and minimised.
