SECTION 2: HAZARD MANAGEMENT
Hazard Management is a proactive process to identify hazards and eliminate or reduce the risk of injury and illness to workers and damage to property, equipment and the environment. By managing all hazards, employers demonstrate their commitment and due diligence to a healthy and safe workplace.
The Nova Scotia Occupational Health and Safety Act states that the employer is responsible for the identification and control of hazards. Hazard Identification, Risk Assessment and Control are critical to the success and effectiveness of any Occupational Health and Safety Program.
