Every workplace has hazards.

A risk of harm to someone occurs when a hazard can’t be removed from the workplace. If a hazard can’t be eliminated, the potential for injury must be minimised and the risk managed on an ongoing basis. There is a hierarchy of controls you can use to manage the risk, ranging from eliminating the hazard to using personal protective equipment (PPE). A combination of these controls often works best.

The control measure you decide upon needs to be decided upon in consultation with your workers.
