may be generally present throughout an operation or industry,
but which may have widely different levels of risk, depending on specific site characteristics.
- Object, physical effect, or a condition
with potential to harm persons, property or environment.
- Risk reduced to
levels such that further risk reduction measures would be so
disproportionate to probability and consequence that it would
be objectively unreasonable to implement them.
- Measure of likelihood of occurrence of an undesirable event
and of potentially adverse consequences.
- Careful consideration by competent
persons of hazards
associated with a task. Potential effect of each hazard, how
serve it might be and likelihood of it occurring, should be considered
to determine effort required to make site as safe as reasonably practicable.
- System that eliminates or mitigates
threat from hazards.
