Risk or Hazard?

As we raised the issue in the last safety article we though we should clarify a couple of things:

Definitions in the context of health and safety:

Hazard – is something with the potential to do harm

Risk – is the likelihood that a person or thing may be harmed or suffer adverse health effects if exposed to a hazard.
A dog is a hazard, being bitten is the adverse health effect and judgement is required to determine the likelihood.
Simple eh?  If you need more advice give us a call or for risk assessment training see here
