(AS 4801) Hazard identification The process of recognizing that a hazard exists and defining its characteristics. (AS 4801) Incident Any unplanned event resulting in, or having a potential for injury, ill- health, damage or other loss. (AS 4801) Risk In the context of this procedure, the likelihood and consequence of injury or harm occurring. (AS 4801) Risk control In the context of this procedure, risk control includes risk reduction and risk avoidance. Risk avoidance reduces the risk to zero.

Risk reduction may involve reducing the likelihood of harm occurring or reducing the consequence if an unwanted event does occur.
