The following are some important key points to conduct an Integrated Management System Risk Assessment:


  1. Falling materials objects
  2. Occupational health
  3. Manual Handling
  4. Tools & Equipment.
  5. Noise
  6. Solids Waste

Control Measures

  • Barricade sensitive areas,
  • Ensure falling protection.
  • Use warning signboards in those areas.
  • Use Head protection strictly.
  • Provide catch on the chuck to collect foreign particle when drilling upward.
  • Wear necessary PPE’s i.e., goggles, hand gloves, dust mask, earplugs etc.
  • No worker should be asked to carry loads above his physical lifting capacity and in any case, no-load shall exceed 30 kilograms per employee.
  • Avoid manual handling where reasonably practical. e.g., use mechanical equipment.
  • Before lifting any object/weight, always assess the weight of the item to be carried.
  • Take help if the load is large/very heavy.
  • Check the line of travel. Don’t allow the load to obstruct the view.
  • The area should be clean, tidy well house kept and free from fall, slip and trip hazards.
  • Training personnel in the kinetics of manual lifting.
  • Use personnel protective equipment as provided.  (Safety shoes, helmets, coveralls, hand gloves etc.)
  • Defective tools should not be issued or used to perform a task.
  • All portable power tools should be equipped with adequate fuse protection either in the tool body or in its electrical plug.
  • The weight, size and type of tool item, object or weight should be selected to suit the job being conducted.
  • Only those persons who have been adequately trained and experienced in the use of the tool should be allowed to use the same.
  • Tools should be maintained in good working condition and tested at regular intervals.
  • All tools & machines should be neatly and correctly stored when not in use.
  • The work area should be maintained in good condition, should be kept clear of loose materials and prevented from becoming slippery.
  • Appropriate approved personal protective equipment.
  • Noise measurements should be carried out where noise is produced and at other workplaces where operatives may be subject to a higher level than their work generates.
  • Use of alternative, less noisy tools and equipment or methods.
  • Appropriate ear protectors must be worn.
  • The waste material should be kept in one dedicated place.
  • All wastes should be removed from the site after the work daily.
  • Dispose off in specific waste bins/yards as per the requirements of [Organization/Govt. Bodies & main or sub-Contractors)].
