Task Analysis

Do you take “All Practicable Steps” to prevent harm to workers while they perform workplace tasks?

Have you identified all potential sources of harm associated with the tasks performed at work? The Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 requires that employers or PCBU’s take all practicable steps to prevent harm to workers while in a place of work.

To fulfill this requirement a detailed analysis of the tasks performed is required to identify all potential hazards and eliminate or reduce the risk of harm.

TriEx safety advisors can analyse specific activities to identify the risk, the potential harm and the appropriate corrective actions required. The workplace hazard and it’s associated controls can then be added to your hazard register and hazard control plans. The hazards and corrective actions can also be included in your safe operating procedures (SOPs) and used as part of your task specific training plan.

Our comprehensive report will specify practical solutions to reduce the risk of injury and make your workplace a safer place to be.

Our Task Analysis can help you:

  • Prevent a repetitive strain/OOS occupational overuse syndrome condition from developing in the first place
  • Improve workstation design so employees are as comfortable as possible, reducing fatigue, reducing injuries and increasing productivity
  • Improve working techniques
  • Ensure employee posture is correct and regular breaks are taken
