Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (HIRA)

Risk Management is a vital part of any proactive system management, though relatively few organisations have been able to effectively weave it into their daily processes. Hazard identification and the assessment of significance is the key to the whole system as it is the impacts of significant risks that needs to be managed. All hazards must be identified in order to determine if they are significant. Significance is determined via the assessment process and this in turn requires that appropriate controls are put in place to reduce this risk exposure to an acceptable level. The types of risk exposures to be considered include all those that could lead to death, ill health, injury or other loss to human.

The objective of carrying out a risk assessment is to determine whether any identified people or ecological values are likely to be adversely affected by soil, water, or air contamination. This will enable land managers to make decisions about managing contaminant risks on sites of concern.
