Consider what could goâ¨wrong, that is, the potential injuries or illnesses that couldâ¨occur. Hazards are the sources of these potential injuries orâ¨illnesses. How serious could How likely is it to be that serious? the injury be? very unlikely very likely likely unlikely Death or permanentâ¨disability 3 1 1 2 Long term illness orâ¨serious injury 4 1 2 3 Travel - Consider aspects of travel that may present a hazardâ¨such as walking to and from the train, crossing the road,â¨transport to the venue Medical attention andâ¨several days off 5 2 3 4 Venue - Consider aspects of the excursion venue that mayâ¨present a hazard such as location near water, cliffs, crowds,â¨slippery floors First aid needed 6 3 4 5 Severity - is a measure of an injury, illness orâ¨disease occurring. When assessing severity, theâ¨most severe category that would be most reasonablyâ¨expected should be selected. Likelihood - is defined as the potential that anâ¨accident will happen that may cause injury or harmâ¨to a person. When making assessment of likelihood,â¨you must establish which of the categories mostâ¨cioseiy describes the probability of the hazardousâ¨incident occurring. Excursion Program Activity - Consider the activities of theâ¨excursion program that may present a hazard such as hazardsâ¨of bushwalking, collecting leaves, observing animals,â¨swimming, singing at an eisteddfod, climbing Equipment- Consider any equipment that may present aâ¨hazard such as sporting equipment, high risk equipment at theâ¨venue Legend 1 and 2 Extreme risk; consider elimination of the activity. Otherwise determine controls that are reasonably practicable to minimise the risk. 3 and 4 Moderate risk; determine controls that are reasonably practicable to minimise the riskâ¨5 and 6 Low risk; manage by routine procedures. Environment - Consider aspects of the environment that mayâ¨present a hazard such as weather conditions, natural hazardsâ¨such as bushfires, floods or storms, the nature of the terrain,â¨plants and animals Elimination or Control Measures Hierarchy of Controls Eliminate the risk, or if this is not reasonably practicable, control the risk to the fullest extent possible by usingâ¨the following hierarchy of controls. Eliminate the hazard: Remove the hazard. Change the activity or stop using it e.g. do not undertake aâ¨particular high risk activity such as abseiling in high wind; do not use high risk equipment. Substitute the hazard: Replace the activity, material, or equipment with a less hazardous one e.g. choose anâ¨easier bushwalk. Isolate the hazard: Isolate the hazard from the person at risk; isolate through distance e.g. select a lunchâ¨location well away from the water; check if a coasta! walk has fencing. Use engineering controls: Consider hiring coaches with seatbelts and ensure these are worn if available Use administrative controls: Establish procedures and safe practices e.g. supervision of students, clear rules,â¨instruction in safe methods, training of staff, volunteers and students in the excursion activities or in the use ofâ¨equipment and qualifications of instructors. Use personal protective equipment: Use appropriately designed and properly fitted equipment such as safetyâ¨goggles, hats and sunscreen, helmets, in conjunction with other control measures identified from above. People - Consider aspects of people that may present aâ¨hazard such as poor behaviour, the nature of participants suchâ¨as maturity, age and skill, child protection issues, medicalâ¨conditions or disabilities Accommodation - Consider aspects of accommodation thatâ¨may present a hazard such as insufficient supervision, standardâ¨of accommodation and amenities, meal menus and allergies,â¨security and child protection issues Other- Consider other hazards related to specific excursions.
