Risk assessment (RA) and Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) must be established for all hazardous tasks. Following are four different risk assessment formats:
- OHSRM Risk Assessment Part A
- OHSRM Risk Assessment Part B
- OHSRM Risk Assessment Part B - Hazardous Substances Risk Assessment Supplement
- Pharmacy Risk Assessment form
Staff and Postgraduate students must conduct a risk assessment of each experiment they are intending to conduct and obtain approval from their academic supervisor prior to commencing the work. Experimental risk assessment must be kept in laboratory books for future reference (and auditing). Other risk assessment must be stored in a central location for the workgroup (research, technical or administrative).
