Unit VII Course Project Risk Assessment Project In this assignment, you will conduct a complete risk assessment (RA) for a task of your choosing. It will provide you an opportunity to demonstrate your understanding of the risk assessment process as discussed up to this point in the course. 1. Select a work task you are familiar with for which the risks can be assessed. The task must be representative of an industrial work process, not a task you would do at home or around the house. The task must have at least five steps and five distinct hazards to address. Each step does not have to have a hazard associated with it; some steps could have more than one hazard. Just be certain you are evaluating at least five hazards in all. The level of detail in the task steps is up to you. (Note: A tire-changing operation is not a suitable task choice because this task was used in the Unit VI assignment). 2. Click here to access the form to document your risk assessment, staring with a description of the process or task. In the description, include the reasons why you selected the task. List the task steps in order, and identify the hazards at each step. Using the Risk Matrix on page 283 of the textbook (there is a color version in the Unit VII Study Guide), estimate the likelihood, severity, and risk rating for each hazard. 3. Propose one or more risk-reduction tactics for each identified hazard. Reevaluate the likelihood, severity, and risk rating for each hazard after control measures are implemented. 4. In the Discussion section of the form, discuss the reasoning you used to assign the likelihood and severity of each hazard before and after controls were implemented. Provide your conclusion by summarizing which risks were reduced to acceptable levels and which ones require additional controls. Comment on the next steps that the organization needs to take regarding this task. The discussion must be at least 300 words in length. 5.
