7/ Using the Risk assessment chart identify the risks associated for a task.

We have an activity that involves a grinder and it has sparks and pieces of metal flying off resulting in an injury with particles in the operators eyes.

The probability of this injury occurring is assessed as “common” with the consequence being a lost time injury. What number would this injury be.

 

8/ From the above question, What number would it be on the chart.

 

9/ From the above question, would the injury be classed as a High, Medium or Low risk injury.

                a/ High risk injury

b/ Medium risk injury

c/ Low risk injury

 

10/ If safety glasses were used as a control measure in the above activity, it was determined that the probability of an injury was now not likely as the eyes were mostly covered, and if a particle did get into the eye the consequence would most likely be a minor injury.

Using the Risk assessment chart, what would the risk number now be for this activity when using safety glasses.

Answer:

11/ From the above assessment, would the injury which was originally classed as a high risk injury, now be classed as a High, Medium or Low risk injury when using safety glasses.

                a/ High risk injury

b/ Medium risk injury

c/ Low risk injury
