Anthony Mogg's curator insight, April 29, 2014 8:45 PM

For Len the Derrickman, it is important to identify all potential hazards. The identification process works best when it is completed with a team of people across different experience levels. Once these hazards have been identified, adequate controls must be put in place. This ensures that risks to people, the environment and equipment is as low as reasonably practicable.
