Identify hazardous manual tasks for priority risk assessment

Conduct a survey
  • Refer to worker discomfort survey, for a tool you could distribute for anonymous feedback to identify potential high risk tasks.
  • This also assists in prioritising work areas and tasks for attention.
Review incident and injury data
  • Undertake a review of your incident and injury data to assess if any trends or hazardous manual task issues.
  • Identify ‘hot spots’ or issues.
Consult with workers through existing forums
  • Consult with health and safety representatives, WHS committees and unions reps to identify areas of concerns.
  • Talk to workers undertaking jobs or tasks to understand what impacts them at work.
