Hazard Analysis

Your boss has asked you to investigate these operations and tasks that he feels have a significant potential for injury in the manufacturing plant:

  1. Operating electric forklifts in narrow aisles.
  2. Repairing the hydraulic system on the gas-powered forklift.
  3. Operating the large sheet metal shear.

For each of the three tasks, do the following:

  • Identify a minimum of two (or three) hazards of the operation and the injuries that could result from exposure to them.
  • Determine the control measures that would eliminate the identified hazards or reduce the risk (severity and/or probability) of injury. Be sure to consider all levels in the hierarchy of controls.
  • Analyze the effectiveness of each control measure by assessing the risks before and after the control is implemented.
  • Provide your recommendations for which control measures should be implemented and why you chose them.

Your submission must be a minimum of two pages, not including title and reference pages, and follow APA guidelines. All sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations
