Hazard Assessment – The Safety Tool for Busy Brewers

Share Post

Speaker: Matt Stinchfield

Hazard assessment is a simple, systematic procedure that helps identify and overcome workplace safety hazards for every job in the brewery. Safety Ambassador Matt Stinchfield will guide you through the process using examples drawn from everyday brewing activities. He will highlight the importance of developing standard operating procedures and point out free guidance and templates. Using these resources, brewers can immediately begin improving their workplace safety, often for little or no cost.

Matt’s presentation will complement the Hazard Assessment Principles resource developed by the BA Safety Subcommittee. This invaluable document outlines the steps involved in carrying out an effective analysis, provides tools for prioritizing hazard elimination and includes a template for standard operating procedures (SOPs).
