Assessing the health risks

Use the Risk Table on p. 57 for assessing health risks, again considering where is the most appropriate place for each hazard using the given criteria. However, in the case of potential health risks, there may be some issues that need expert input to identify the exact level of hazard present, and the potential severity of the harm it could cause. Use Checklist 8.1 at the end of this chapter in the same way as Checklist 5.1, adding the details in the relevant columns.
