It is important that everyone training, working, and living on Fort Jackson participate in the risk management process. This awareness of hazards and how to react in controlling them are the critical elements to safe activities. Practical actions and competence are critical in the development of preventive measures.
Everyone’s participation is not only a right; it is fundamental in making the Fort Jackson Safety and Occupational Health management effective and efficient.
Everyone has the right/duty to:
be consulted on arrangements for the organization of the risk assessment and for the appointment of those undertaking the task
participate in the risk assessment
alert their leadership regarding perceived risks
report any changes in the workplace
be informed of the risks to their safety and health and of the measures necessary to eliminate or reduce these risks
be involved in the process of deciding on the preventive and protective measures to be put in place
ask leadership to put in place appropriate measures and to submit proposals to minimize hazards or to remove the danger at source
cooperate to help leadership in ensuring that the working environment is safe
be trained/receive instructions on the measures to be put in place
take care not to create a hazard for others
In addition, it is important representatives (unit safety officers) are trained so that they understand risk assessment and their role in controlling hazards.
