HazardCo | Task Analysis hazard management tool

A Task Analysis is a hazard management tool that helps you identify hazards and the appropriate controls before you carry out a specific task or job. Completing a Task Analysis will help reduce the risks on-site by walking you through assessing the work before you start and putting the correct processes in place to make sure you do it safely.


The HazardCo TA is an easy-to-use guide that gives you options to choose from:

  • An identification of the work on-site
  • Specific hazards relating to the work
  • A description of the measures to be implemented to control the risks
  • The order of work (method statement) showing the tasks that will be carried out in a step-by-step process.

All workers involved in the work should discuss the Task Analysis so they understand exactly what work is being done, how it will be completed and the controls that will be used to keep everyone safe. It’s fundamental and should be done before any high-risk work gets underway.
