We look at the variables of the project risk assessment
If you are planning to oversee a project such as construction, landscaping, festival or any event that would require that safety precautions be taken in order to protect staff members as well as the general public; then you will want to look into running a proper project risk assessment. A risk assessment is formed by taking in as many know vulnerabilities and variables as possible and placing them on a risk assessment template so you can inform all of those that need to be in the know of what possible risks need to be brought to attention. Certain government and insurance offices require that the risk assessment is completed before a project is to take place. When building your project risk assessment will more than likely be asked to have a third-party individual or company come in to review what risks are apparent and need to be brought to the attention of staff members. And depending on the size of your project will determine the overall size your project assessment and in this article we are going to take a look at a hypothetical project and what needs to be addressed in order to form a proper risk assessment.
A hypothetical project risk assessment
Let’s say that we have been put forth with the task of running a risk assessment for a project that will be construction of a multi-story parking garage. With a risk assessment for a construction project of this size we will need ample amounts of time as well as a few individuals to help us locate all the potential risks as well as work on hypothetical situations such as natural disasters and inclement weather. We need to look at all the safety precautions that need to take place such as high visibility vest from being around heavy equipment as well as safety harnesses for workers as this will be a multistory parking facility. With a large commercial project there’ll be many individuals going and every single direction as well as heavy machinery moving about such as bulldozers, concrete mixing trucks, cranes and many more so therefore we need the employees to be well aware of their surroundings in order to keep them safe. You want to reiterate safety concerns as well as education with staff members in order to educate them properly keep them aware of potential threats to their safety. Once we make sure there is sufficient medical supplies that are available as well as fire extinguishing canisters and anything else needed to subdue the fire.
There are many different variables when it comes to project each one will be unique in its own therefore it is up to you and your colleagues to come up with all the hazards can think of in order to make a thorough project risk assessment and can make the whole project process run smoothly as well as even possibly save a life.
