HIRARC or known as Hazard Identification, Risk Assessment, Risk Control Training is include in one of the act of Occupational Safety and Health Amendment (2022) Act. At section 18 (b) states that it is duty of employer or self employed person or principal shall conduct risk assessment in relation to the health and safety risk posed to any person who may be affected by the undertaking the place of work.

Hazard Identification, Risk Assessment and Risk Control (HIRARC) are essential components of any effective safety management system in the workplace. Hazard identification involves identifying potential sources of harm or danger in the work environment that could cause injury, illness, or damage. This process often involves conducting workplace inspections, reviewing incident reports, and consulting with employees to identify hazards that may not be immediately apparent.

Once hazards have been identified, the next step is to assess the risks associated with those hazards. Risk assessment involves determining the likelihood of a hazard causing harm and the potential severity of that harm. This typically involves analyzing the frequency and severity of potential incidents, as well as considering the effectiveness of existing control measures. By conducting a thorough risk assessment, organizations can prioritize their efforts to control the most significant risks first.

Risk control is the final step in the process and involves implementing measures to eliminate or reduce the risks identified during the assessment phase. This may include implementing engineering controls, administrative controls, or personal protective equipment to mitigate the potential impact of hazards on employees and the organization. It is important for organizations to regularly review and update their risk control measures to ensure they remain effective and continue to protect employees from harm.
