A risk assessment is methodology of analyzing probability, severity, and consequence to determine the overall risk involved that may cause harm to a worker or worker(s).

Performing a risk/hazard assessment is an important step in protecting your employee’s and complying with legislation. A risk or hazard assessment assists in focusing on hazards that have the potential to cause harm and the probability of an incident occurring.

The objective of the risk assessment is to recognize the hazards, assess the risks and recommend control measures in order to manage or prevent the risk and ultimately prevent accidents or incidents. The risk assessment report will detail all of the findings and recommendations for corrective action. The main components of completing a risk assessment is determining the:

An accident is an undesired event that results in physical harm to a person or damage to property.

It should always be considered practical to conduct an accident investigation for all accidents, incidents and near misses to determine the root cause so prevention of similar occurrences and future losses can be avoided. However, there are certain incidents/accidents in the workplace that are required to not only be reported to WorkSafeBC… but also followed up immediately with a formal investigation.

Regulation ExcerptIncident Accident

Incident Reporting

Immediate notice of certain accidents (WCB 172)

An employer must immediately notify the Board of the occurrence of any accident that;

(a) resulted in serious injury to or the death of a worker,

(b) involved a major structural failure or collapse of a building, bridge, tower, crane, hoist, temporary construction support system or excavation,

(c) involved the major release of a hazardous substance, or

(d) was an incident required by regulation to be reported.

Except as otherwise directed by an officer of the Board or a peace officer, a person must not disturb the scene of an accident that is reportable except so far as is necessary to attend to persons injured or killed, prevent further injuries or death, or protect property that is endangered as a result of the accident.

Incident Investigations

Incidents that must be investigated

An employer must immediately undertake an investigation into the cause of any accident or other incident that;

(a) is required to be reported by section 172,

(b) resulted in injury to a worker requiring medical treatment,

(c) did not involve injury to a worker, or involved only minor injury not requiring medical treatment, but had a potential for causing serious injury to a worker, or

(d) was an incident required by regulation to be investigated.
