This process involves checking to see whether the introduced changes reduce the risk previously assessed. It may involve repeating the process of hazard identification, risk assessment and risk control to ensure that all risks to safety and health from a particular hazard have been controlled as far as practicable. This depends on the hazard, the nature of the assessed risks and on the control measures used.
Where the evaluation of risk control measures reveals some remaining risk, the process continues until risk is minimised as far as reasonably practicable. The evaluation of control measures may involve the reworking of the process of hazard identification, risk assessment, risk control and evaluation of control measures. Satisfactory control of risk is often a gradual consultative process, involving trialling and refining risk control measures relative to employee feedback, new technology and changes in scientific knowledge over time.
