Location                        Multiple locations (Mineral sites + Landfill sites)
Work activity/Task              Working on mineral and landfill sites
STEP 1: Identify the Hazards (foreseeable risks) mark X if present/requiring control
Poor environmental conditions                      Lone working                                             Landfill gas + leachate
Slips, trips falls                                 Fence climbing                                           Lack of First Aid Provision
Ground conditions (marsh/ slopes)                  diseases (zoonosis)                                      Animals (livestock/ farmers dogs etc)
Working adjacent traffic                           Bites/ Stings                                            Weather/ seasonal difference
Working near water                                 Brambles/ dog rose
Specific Site Conditions: Describe site elements which create specific risks (i.e. weather conditions for roof work, etc.) which require precautions to be taken during works:
    onsite risk assessment (using this document) to be conducted to fill in the gaps…
    check Hansons Health and Safety operating policies
    check Viridor Health and Safety operating policies
    check for gas and leatchate

                                                                                                                                                                                                                The controls have been selected to protect the health and safety of individuals that may be affected by the work. If the task changes another risk assessment will be required.
STEP 2: Decide who might be harmed and how
Persons Exposed                              X Comments (include reference to disabled, trainees, etc.)
