RISK ASSESSMENT AND MANAGEMENT APPROACH

We don't just provide construction services, we are building a community.

RISK ASSESSMENT

It is the policy of TJCM that for every work task to be completed, the risk (probability + severity) is assessed/analyzed so that proper controls can be put into place to minimize and lower the risk of injury/illness. TJCM utilizes a combination of formal hazard assessment techniques and site-specific hazard assessment techniques.

Risk assessment is a vital component in ensuring on-site safety, helping to drive TJCM toward our ZERO ACCIDENT target.

Formal Hazard Assessments

TJCM field staff and all subcontractors are required to participate in Formal Hazard Assessments prior to start of a new job and as job conditions or scope of work is altered or new work tasks are added.

  • Pre-Job Hazard Assessment and Safety Meeting
  • Job Hazard Analysis for all TJCM Tasks

Site-Specific Hazard Assessment Methods

TJCM field staff and all subcontractors are required to complete Site-Specific Hazard Assessments prior to start of a new job and as job conditions or scope of work is altered, while on-site.

  • Daily Tailgate Meetings
  • Field Level Hazard Assessments (FLHA)

HAZARD CONTROLS

Once hazards are assessed and prioritized using TJCM’s Risk Ranking Table and controls are put into place. TJCM follows the below guide/hierarchy for providing controls for hazards. These controls are listed below in order from MOST EFFECTIVE to LEAST EFFECTIVE:

Hierarchy of Controls

S - Personnel Safety

P - Business/Production

E - Environmental

D - Damage

H - HIGH RISKS
Unacceptable risk level. Actions are required to eliminate or reduce the risk immediately

M- MEDIUM RISKS
Risk controls are required

L - LOW RISKS
Acceptable risk (controls will still be justified)

4. Not Applicable 4A 4B 4C 4D
3. Minor 3A 3B 3C 3D
2. Serious 2A 2B 2C 2D
1. Imminent Danger 1A 1B 1C 1D
A. Probable B. Reasonably Probable C. Remote D. Extremely Remote
RATING SEVERITY PROBABILITY
HIGH IMMINENT / SERIOUS PROBABLE / REASONABLY PROBABLE
1A, 1B, 2A, 2B S - Disabling injury, loss of body or fatality, lost time incident. Repetitive event
P - Loss of function of facility for extended eriods, with business consequences, major quality deviation. At least once a year
E - Reportable violation, toxic release. Several times in the lifecycle of a project.
D - High repair cost ($25,000.00 and above) Has happened frequently in similar circumstances
Greater than 50% chance of occurring.
MEDIUM SERIOUS / MINOR REASONABLY PROBABLE / REMOTE
1C, 2C, 3A, 3B S - Medical Aid Infrequent Event
P - Short duration loss of function, serious quality deviation, medium business impact May only happen occasionally (les than once a year)
E - Minor spill, non-toxic release Has been observed in similar circumstances
D - Moderate repair cost ($2,500.00 - $25,000.00) 10% - 50% chance of occurring
LOW MINOR / NOT APPLICABLE REMOTE / EXTREMELY REMOTE
1D, 2D, 3D, 4A, 4B, 4C, 4D S - First aid and incident with no treatment Unlikely event
P - Brief interruption or minor quality deviation Never happened to date
E - Minor leak, non-toxic fugitive emissions May happen less than once in 10 years
D - Low repair costs ($2,500.00 and below) Has never been observed but is still felt to be a possibility
Less than 10% chance of happening
