Haskell has a task-risk assessments program that is designed to reduce risky job-site behavior.

Haskell Corp.

Haskell Corp. believes in precise goals: no accidents, no harm to people, and no damage to the environment.

Haskell promotes an inclusive safety culture to meet that goal, empowering every employee to be a part of safety solutions.

One of its programs is the use of task-risk assessments, which remove personal risk tolerance factors from the equation and rely on the experience of team members to honestly evaluate the risk of each task. These assessments are based on two factors: probability of an accident and severity of an accident with no controls in place. The task is then reevaluated with controls in place to reduce residual risk.

These task-risk assessments give workers a road map for safety and clearly illustrate the participation of top management in the safety efforts company-wide.

Haskell has been an AGC Safety Team member since 1992.
