Hazard - is something that has the potential to cause harm; such as falling rocks, tides, hammering.

 

Risk - a combination of the probability that an accident might occur and the amount of harm caused.

 

Safety Measures - the proposed action you propose to take to minimise the risk e.g. wear hard hats, instruct participants not to paddle in a sludge lagoon, wear safety specs when hammering. Please also refer to the Society's safety policy.

 

Remember: you should bring the hazards and safety measures to the attention of the party at the start of the field meeting.
