Equipment Hazard Management Forms
Most equipment has a specific way that it can be used safely. Many times, the manufacturer will provide the information necessary to inform the user how to operate the equipment in a safe manner. Where the manufacturer stops, most of the time, is in real-world application of the equipment. Therefore, for every hazardous task involving equipment, it is important that a Job Hazard Assessment be accomplished; in this case it is known as Equipment Hazard Management. The pre-made forms have good information on how to use the equipment in a safe manner in the real world. The listed forms are not all-inclusive. You may be using a piece of equipment that is listed, but the way it’s being used may require different steps to ensure safety. Or you may have a piece of equipment that is not listed here. For those cases, there is a blank form available below. Please complete if necessary. Whatever way that it is being accomplished, be sure that you have assessed the hazards of a piece of equipment and documented how you will mitigate those hazards. For any questions, please contact our office.
