Workers should be protected from occupational risks they could be exposed to. This could be achieved through a risk management process, which involves risk analysis, risk assessment and risk control practices.
In compliance with the OHS Act (85 of 1993) and Regulations, employers are required to conduct an occupational health risk assessment.
The occupational health risk assessment is a systematic procedure to identify potential health hazards, evaluate the extent of exposure subjectively and/or objectively, and to establish the need for, and effectiveness of existing control measures. The assessment facilitates the drafting of medical surveillance, biological exposure monitoring and occupational health education programmes.
