What is a Workplace Hazard? 

A Hazard is an existing or potential condition in the workplace that, by itself or by interacting with other variables, can result in an incident. 

Hazards can include an unsafe condition or work activity, faulty equipment or equipment in poor condition, fleet vehicle damage, work environments that have not been cleaned or maintained, poorly designed workspaces,  improper disposal of equipment, tools, or biohazards, etc. 

Hazard reporting processes vary with each Health Authority. Contact your local Safety Advisor to get more information on reporting hazards in your workplace.

A near miss is any work-related incident or event that has potential to result in a serious injury.
