Safety procedure documents will list all hazards associated with a certain work task. A risk matrix will then be consulted in order to assign a risk factor to the task. The personal protective equipment required will be recorded, as well as the steps to safely completing the task. Each worker involved in carrying out the task is responsible for ensuring that all guidelines are carried out.
