those hazards.


Identify the second step step in ORM?

Assess Hazards
For each hazard identified, determine the associated degree of risk in terms of probabifity and severity. Although not required, the use of a matrix may be helpful in assessing harzards.


Identify the third step in ORM

Step 3: Make Risk Decisions
First, develop risk control options. Start with the most serious risk first and select control that will reduce the risk to a minimum consistent with mission accomplishment. Decide if the benefit outweighs the risk. If risk outweighs benefit, consult with the chain of command.

1. Engineering Controls
2. Aministrative Controls
3. Peronal Protective Equipment
