Hazard Identification and Risk Perception

Hazard Identification and Risk Perception: A Roadmap for Improved Risk Assessment and Control

Hazard identification is a cornerstone of effective risk control processes and practices. Risk perception; i.e., attitudes and feelings about both hazards and risks, is a key precursor to the judgements and decisions that are made when assessing ad controlling hazards and risk.

This masterclass discusses the importance of effective hazard identification and risk perception, the behaviours and biases that can result in unidentified hazards and the influences that risk perception can have on risk assessment and control.

Pavilion 500 Masterclass
Tuesday, 23rd July
12:00pm – 1:30pm
CPD Points: Certificate of Attendance – 1.5 hours 



Hazard identification is a well-established process within risk management systems in all mining operations, and industry has an extensive catalogue of hazard control methodologies available in the form of codes, standards, and guidance material.

Yet, research tells us that, despite the sophisticated processes and practices organisations employ to manage risk:

  1. Known hazards can be left unidentified and therefore uncontrolled, or
  2. When hazards are identified and controlled, the perception of associated risks can render controls weakened or ineffective.

This CPD session discusses both practices, processes and behaviours that can result in a lack of controls, or ineffective hazard and risk controls, and presents a roadmap for improved hazard identification and perception of risk, with a view to the implementation of effective and reliable controls.

Key Takeaways:

  • Hazard identification is a cornerstone of effective risk control processes and practices. 
  • Risk perception can have both a positive and negativeinfluence on risk assessment and control.
  • Key skills and practices for improved hazard identification and risk perception in the mining and quarrying context. 

Who Should Attend? 
This course is designed for managers and supervisors in mining and quarrying who are responsible for, or participate in, operational risk management.

Including those in other roles who have an interest in improved risk management outcomes.
