GARIS PANDUAN BAGI PENGENALPASTIAN HAZARD, PENAKSIRAN RISIKO DAN KAWALAN RISIKO (HIRARC)
*Guideline for Hazard Identification, Risk Assessment and Risk Control (HIRARC)
Hazard identification, risk assessment and risk control (HIRARC) are the bread and butter for all who are involved in occupational safety and health. It allows the organisation to perform proper planning and management of the workplace and its environment by maximising safety and minimising potential for adverse impacts. This guideline offers a concise how-to on HIRARC that can be used across various disciplines, particularly for small to medium-sized industries. It should be noted that this guideline only caters for physical hazards, and thus not suitable for those looking to assess health-related risks.
