Risk assessment tool which will assist users in identifying hazard and estimating risk involved in each identified hazard. This risk assessment tool will identify possible hazard involved in each task in departments. Once the hazard has been identified, risks involved will be estimated and categorized. If the estimated risk falls in a category, which is higher than the low risk category, then possible control measures will be recommended. At the same time, the user can add new work plan, task, and control measures into the system to update existing information system. Foundry industry is considered to be a high risk area since it contains the hazardous operations. Assessing the risk and controlling the risk according to the aspects of occupational health and safety is very hard in foundry. The motive of this project is identifying the hazard and risk associated with the various steps involved in each process and taking all the possible measure to control the risk. Hazard Identification, Risk Assessment and Risk Control (HIRARC) has become fundamental to the practice of planning, management and the operation of a business as a basic of risk management. The organizations that have carried out risk assessment at the work place have noted numerous changes in their working practice. Those who have already carried out risk assessment in their work, have reported positive changes in their working practice, they recognize substandard act and working condition as they develop and take necessary corrective action. Legislation requires that this process should be systematic and be recorded so that the results are reliable and the analysis complete. The risk assessment process should be continuous and should not be regarded as a one-off exercise. Hazard Identification Risk Assessment (HIRA) is a process of defining and describing hazards by characterizing their probability, frequency and severity and evaluating adverse consequences, including potential loses and injuries. A risk assessment that provides the factual basis for activities proposed in the strategy to reduce losses from identified hazards. Local risk assessments must provide sufficient information to enable the jurisdiction to identify and prioritize appropriate mitigation actions to reduce losses from identified hazards. A description of the type, location, and extent of all hazards that can affect the jurisdiction. The plan shall include information on previous occurrences of hazard events and on the probability of future hazard events. For multi-jurisdictional plans, the risk assessment section must assess each jurisdiction’s risks where they vary from the risks facing the entire planning area.
