Hazard assessments aren't just a legal requirement, they play a crucial role in workplace health and safety. Formal hazard assessments give your safety department the opportunity to analyze and identify all the hazards facing all workers across your organization and put controls in place to mitigate these hazards.

They present the opportunity to communicate hazards and controls across your entire organization, and encourage worker participation by including those with the best insight into hazards (your workers) in the process.
