General Risk Assessment Procedure Breaking Down the Activity into its Constituent Elements To breakdown an activity the following considerations must be taken into account • A step by step breakdown of the work activity • The persons involved in the work • The duration of work • The type of equipment/machinery • The type of material handled • The work environment 3. The risk assessment process normally requires baseline information on appropriate control measures. derived from a number to which the Contractor is expected to make reference: • Industry standards and codes of practice • Experience of individuals • Accidents/incidents records • Knowledge of processes/activities It is essential that these risk assessments are carried out by teams of appropriately experienced and competent people. Falling from height. slipping • The hazards associated in operating the equipment / machinery • The hazards associated in handling the material • The hazards relating to the work environment 2.2 Identifying The Hazards associated with each step Consider what could go wrong at each step in order to identify the types of hazards in the work activity • The hazards a person is exposed to at every step of the work activity.

The Contractor shall be given a copy of a Civil Design Safety Submission prepared by the Authority or its Consultant. The Contractor shall use it as a base for the preparation of the Civil Construction Safety Submissions (Civil CNSS). The CNSS can be submitted in accordance to structural packages and shall be submitted to the Engineer two (2) months before application for permit to excavate; or two (2) months before making structural submission to the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) for temporary works. The Engineer shall decide on the final timing for the CNSS submission. The Contractor shall also prepare and submit a Civil Handover Safety Submission (Civil HSS). The Civil HSS shall be submitted four (4) months before the end of the defects liability period (DLP) of the contract. The Accident Frequency, Accident Severity and Risk Index for the risk assessment and Hazard Register Structure for the Civil DSS, CNSS and the HSS shall be in compliance with Clause 4 of this Annex. The Civil CNSS and HSS shall be subjected to the acceptance of the Engineer. The Contractor shall make amendments and revise the Safety Submissions in accordance with the Engineer’s instructions. Safety Submissions Civil Construction Safety Submission (CIVIL CNSS) The objective of the Civil CNSS is to demonstrate that the residual hazards transferred from the Civil DSS have been mitigated during construction phase in the specific contract and that the Contractor has in place the necessary arrangement for managing safety risks.
