Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment

A core challenge faced by Technical Managers is how to prevent, prepare, mitigate, respond and recover from a myriad of hazards. Several questions arise when faced with this challenge:

  • What hazards exist in my area?
  • How frequently do they occur?
  • How severe can their impact be on the community, infrastructure, property, and the   environment?
  • Which hazards pose the greatest threat to the community?


Sanscriti Electric India Pvt. Ltd.  Team Help Technical  Managers in answering these questions. It is a systematic risk assessment tool that can be used to assess the risks of various hazards.

There are three reasons why a HIRA is useful to the emergency management profession:

  • It helps emergency management professionals prepare for the worst and/or most likely risks.
  • Allows for the creation of exercises, training programs, and plans based on the most likely scenarios.
  • Saves time and resources by isolating hazards that cannot occur in the designated area.
