using the Risk Level Calculator below

control and any induction and training necessary.


Implementing and Monitoring WHS

Employees and customers are often faced with risks when in the business premises.
Managers try to minimize the risks occurring by trying to mitigate them to ensure that the
workplace is safe and the workers and customers are also safe and free from hazardous
exposure. A risk is not avoidable and is present in everyday activities. A risk can be defined as
an uncertainty that surrounds events to be performed in future and the outcome (Chance &
Brooks, 2015). That is the expression of the likelihood and impact of an activity which has the
potential of influencing the achievement of the objectives of a company.
However, this paper addresses four hazards that might be experienced in Winter Garden
noting down the potential risks, prioritizing the risks by calculating the priority list and finally
provides the control methods to control each hazard using the hierarchy of control.

Identification of risks in the workplace

There are four common types of hazards that employees are exposed in the workplace.
That is Physical hazards, ergonomic hazards, biological hazards and chemical hazards (Burke,
2013). The most common type of workplace hazards are Physical hazards. Four hazards that
might occur in Winter Gardens include:


 Slip and fall accidents
 Negligent security
 Elevator and Escalator accidents
 Food poisoning
The above mentioned hazards are real and often occur in workplace. The management
should often develop measures to mitigate such risks in order to have a safe working

Potential of risks

Clients in Winter Gardens might succumb to injuries and hazards such as tripping and
slipping. These injuries expose clients to potential risks such as broken limbs, sprains, injured
necks and backs etc (Chance et al., 2014). Security negligence may expose the clients visiting
Winter Gardens to crime which might lead to loss of property or even injuries in the event of
crime or terrorism related crimes. Elevators and escalators also expose clients to accidents
when they move from one place to another in the Winter Gardens. Food poisoning is also a
potential danger which can occur even in exotic places like Winter Gardens. Food poisoning
might expose individuals to risk of being diagnosed with E. coli and Salmonella. Therefore, it
is important to observe safety measures in the workplace (Hoyt et al., 2013).

Recommendations and Measures to Control Each Hazard
The best way to hazards is to put measures that can help in mitigating the risks
involved. To avoid tripling in the garden, items within the buildings should be arranged in an

orderly manner also to reduce accidents caused by tripling while at work (Rampini et al., 2014).
All grease, food or water spills should be wiped off the floors immediately. On the same note,
loose wiring and electrical cords within the environment should be taped on the walls or floors.
The management of Winter Gardens should also tighten up security and bar individuals
having weapons from accessing the facility to prevent crimes that might occur due to
negligence. Security also needs to monitor all security cameras within the facility especially the
parking garage (Rampini et al., 2015). To prevent elevator and escalators accidents, the
management of Winter Garden should ensure that all elevators and escalators in the facility are
well maintained and put in place. On the same note, the organization should also address safety
concerns that may arise during maintenance checks. Finally, food should be cooked properly
and hygiene should be observed while handling either cooked or raw food to prevent the
occurrence of food poisoning within the Winter Gardens.
