Possible Potential Hazards at Workplace

Chemical Hazards 

  • Chemical exposure (inhalation, absorption injection by contact with needles/sharps)
  • Is there a risk of contact with chemicals? 
  • Is there potential for generation of airborne chemical dust (e.g. sweeping), fumes (e.g. welding), mists or vapours (e.g. use of fast evaporating solvents from grease removal)?

Compressed Gas

Designated Substances

  • Asbestos (e.g., pipe insulation, floor tiles)
  • Quartz/silica (e.g., fine sand dust from cutting, drilling or grinding concrete, ceramic or stone)
  • Lead (e.g., lead paint)
  • Mercury (e.g., thermometers)
  • Arsenic (e.g., certain wood preservatives)
  • Isocyanates (e.g., spray-on polyurethane products used to produce pesticides)
  • Benzene (solvent found in petroleum products)
  • Vinyl Chloride (precursor to polymers)
  • Acrylonitrile (used in industrial chemical processes)
  • Ethylene Oxide (used in industrial chemical processes)
  • Cook Oven Emissions (not on campus)

Energy/Fire Physical Hazards

  • Electrical hazards (shock/short circuit, fire, loss of power, high voltage)
  • Fire/explosion hazards: ignition sources, flammable atmosphere
  • Uncontrolled energy (lock-out/tag-out)
  • Utility lines (e.g., natural gas)
  • Radiation hazards
  • Noise
  • Ergonomic hazards (e.g. awkward posture, repetition, materials handling (lifting, holding,
  • carrying, lowering, pushing, pulling)

Environment 

  • Cold stress/working in a cold environment
  • Heat stress/working in a hot environment
  • Confined space/restricted space
  • Fall from/working at heights
  • Slip/trip hazards
  • Poor housekeeping
  • Pedestrian traffic
  • Poor lighting/visibility
  • Poor ventilation
  • Sloped ground/uneven surfaces
  • Vehicle traffic
  • Excavation
  • Weather (snow/rain/wind/ice)

Physical Hazards

  • Radiation hazards
  • Noise
  • Ergonomic hazards (e.g. awkward posture, repetition, materials handling (lifting, holding, carrying, lowering, pushing, pulling)
  • Vibration
  • Thermal burns

Equipment/Tools

  • Falling objects
  • High-pressure systems
  • Pinch/wrap/shear points
  • Sharp objects
  • Struck by/struck against objects
  • Mechanical failure

Biological Hazards 

  • Biohazardous materials
  • Insects, birds, and animals (including manure)
  • Mould
