Having the crew of 60 Minutes show up at your plant, having your CEO called to testify before Congress, being vilified in the press after a man-made disaster – these are certain to cause a bad day. Hazard evaluation is the first step in avoiding that bad day.

Hazard evaluation is a multi-step process designed to find the hazards in a particular product, process or piece of equipment, and then to evaluate those hazards for injury or property damage potential. It also includes enumerating the failure modes that can cause hazards to be realized.

This three-hour course is an introduction to hazard evaluation. It will discuss the steps of hazard evaluation and various methods for performing it. The course material will assist in identifying commonly (and not so commonly) encountered hazards. It will provide a systematic framework for the small scale hazard evaluation process. Specific use of both the checklist method and the what-if method will be made. Numerous case studies will be explored where proper hazard evaluation and corrective response would have prevented a disaster.
