Job Steps & General Hazards
Job Steps and General Hazards are the two ways that specific tasks (or steps) can be added to a risk assessment. Both allow your staff members to specify the actual task they are performing, identify hazards and implement a hierarchy of control. The difference between a Job Step and a General Hazard is that Job Steps have a Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) as the control.
As staff begin to fill out a Job Step or General Hazards they will be presented with options that have been used on previous risk assessments. If they select an option then the Job Step or General Hazard will be populated with the hazards, risks and controls. The staff member can then review the control and ensure they conduct themselves safely.
SafeWorkPro uses previous Job Steps and General Hazards that your staff have filled out. So, as a manager you may no longer want a specific Job Step or General Hazard to be an available option, or you may want to simply add your own to ensure those options are appearing when the staff members are filling out their risk assessments.
