The hazard, risk and workload factors are identified by analysing the work carried out at the site being assessed, by observing the performance of the work and by interviewing and involving employees. Checklists provide a more systematic approach to the identification of hazards and risks.

In addition to normal operations, abnormal situations, such as maintenance and repair work, holiday periods, shifts and the use of substitutes and trainees, must be taken into account in the identification of hazards.
