Will You Spot the Hazard?


Why Don’t People Recognize Hazards?

Research shows that people are better at spotting some kinds of hazards than others.

For example, most people have an easy time spotting working from heights as being hazardous. However, many people miss chemical or biological hazards.(For example, getting wet concrete on your skin.)

Recent research has shown that people’s ability to spot hazards by using the Energy Wheel.

Energy Wheel

The Energy Wheel may help your folks spot twice as many hazards that they can take action to remove or mitigate.

At the 2021 Global TapRooT® Summit, Alex Paradies will discuss the research and the use of the wheel when performing a hazard analysis to more effectively spot potential issues that should be addressed in pre-job safety analyses and pre-job briefings.

The session Alex is presenting is titled “Hazard Analysis & the Energy Wheel.” It is from 10:15-11:45 on Thursday.
