Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (HIRA) is carried out for identification of hazard, the analysis of hazard, estimation of the likely effects of the risk and the mitigation measures/controls that are to be taken to minimize the risk. A good hazard identification process is the key to good risk management. It may not be possible to identify all hazards before commencement of work. Hence, the risk management process is dynamic which means control methods are to be applied even for risks which are identified even at a later stage of the project. Risk assessment gives an idea regarding the severity of hazards and safety measures to be taken. The present study focuses on hazards in excavation and the measures to be taken to minimize the same. The study was conducted on high rise buildings.

Abstract


Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (HIRA) is carried out for identification of hazard, the analysis of hazard, estimation of the likely effects of the risk and the mitigation measures/controls that are to be taken to minimize the risk. A good hazard identification process is the key to good risk management. It may not be possible to identify all hazards before commencement of work. Hence, the risk management process is dynamic which means control methods are to be applied even for risks which are identified even at a later stage of the project. Risk assessment gives an idea regarding the severity of hazards and safety measures to be taken. The present study focuses on hazards in excavation and the measures to be taken to minimize the same. The study was conducted on high rise buildings.
