Hazard Assessments

For each task involving hazardous materials or physical hazards, a written hazard assessment should be conducted and certified by the Permitted Individual. Tasks involving similar hazards may be grouped together on a single assessment form. Sample assessment and certification forms for common chemical hazards can be found below.

Permitted Individuals are responsible for conducting hazard assessments. Such assessments should not be limited to chemical hazards, but should also include such issues, when applicable, as radiation hazards, biological hazards, heat and cold hazards, and other physical hazards.

Please contact the EHS Industrial Hygiene Section (882-7018) for assistance with hazard assessments or visit the Hazard Evaluations portion of the EHS website to learn more.
