Defining Dangerous Occurrences and Hazardous Conditions

To define dangerous occurrences and hazardous conditions, use the Dangerous Occurrences Table (HS_DANGER_OCC), Hazardous Conditions/Materials (HAZ_CON_MATRL_TBL), Job Code Hazards Table (JOBCODE_HAZRDS_TBL), and Location Hazards Table (LOCATN_HAZRDS_TBL) components.

Hazard control involves identifying workplace hazards and acting to eliminate or minimize any workplace hazard or exposure that risks the health and safety of personnel.

Use the pages that are listed in this section to set up types of dangerous occurrences and hazardous conditions. Once you establish codes for them, track hazardous materials and conditions by job code and location to identify employees who are at risk.

This section discusses how to:
