Risk In The Workplace

A Risk Assessment is the systematic identification of undesired events and their causes and analyzing their likelihood and potential consequences in order to make a valued judgement as to their acceptability and tolerability. A Health and Safety Risk Assessment is one of the most important parts of the Occupational Health & Safety Act 85 of 1993, no company can be compliant to the OHS Act if this is not conducted and monitored on a regular basis. Our Risk Assessments help you Identify, Manage and Control risks and hazards in your workplace to ensure your employees are safe.

MAKROSAFE Practitioners work according to well-defined protocols and risk assessment procedures to examine risk in the workplace and to identify any issues that could cause harm to employees or the organisation at large.

These Practitioners identify all tasks and activities that have to be executed to control each risk. As risk is categorised as being High, Medium or Low risks, MAKROSAFE Practitioners suggest control measures they consider to be best to maintain workplaces in the lowest risks categories possible.

All MAKROSAFE Practitioners are well-trained and rely on vast experience. They continuously update their knowledge and skills and closely monitor trends and developments in the industry. This puts them in the best position to identify possible workplace hazards and risks at an early stage and to advise companies about control measures that should be considered to nullify or minimise risk to acceptable levels.

The control of incidents and success of control measures is monitored and re-evaluated every three months and clients are briefed continuously to ensure they are aware of the risk pertaining to their workplace.

Risk Assessment


The process of hazard identification and risk assessment is a systematic approach used to identify potential hazards in the workplace and evaluate the associated risks. It involves several steps to ensure a comprehensive understanding of the hazards and their potential impact on workers' health and safety. The process typically includes:

Identification of Hazards: This step involves identifying and recognizing potential hazards present in the workplace. It can be done through various methods such as workplace inspections, reviewing incident reports, analyzing work processes, and consulting with employees.

Assessment of Risks: Once the hazards are identified, the next step is to assess the risks associated with each hazard. This involves evaluating the likelihood and severity of potential harm or injury that could result from the hazard. Risk assessment helps prioritize hazards based on their level of risk and determines the need for control measures.

Control Measures: After assessing the risks, control measures are implemented to eliminate or minimize the identified hazards. This can include engineering controls (e.g., installing safety guards, ventilation systems), administrative controls (e.g., implementing safety procedures, providing training), and personal protective equipment (PPE) requirements.

Monitoring and Review: The effectiveness of the implemented control measures should be continuously monitored and reviewed to ensure they are working as intended. Regular inspections, incident investigations, and feedback from employees play a crucial role in identifying any new hazards or gaps in the control measures.

Documentation and Communication: It is essential to document the hazard identification and risk assessment process, including the identified hazards, risk levels, control measures, and any changes made. Clear communication of the findings and control measures to employees, management, and relevant stakeholders is vital for fostering a safe work environment.

By following this process, organizations can systematically identify hazards, assess risks, and implement appropriate control measures to protect the health and safety of their workforce. Regular updates and revisions to the hazard identification and risk assessment process ensure its effectiveness in an ever-changing work environment.
