HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION & RISKS ASSESSMENT FOR HIGH-RISE BUILDING CONSTRUCTION BY FAILURE MODE AND EFFECTS ANALYSIS [FMEA] & PREVENTED BY OH&S MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

Authors: Thu Ya Mon

Abstract: Hazard is a potential source to cause the hostile consequences to physical or mental condition of a person in the workplace. Risk means the effect of uncertainty which may be either positive or negative. Risks assessment is the identification of risk sources, analyzing and evaluating them to understand the degree of safe and healthy work environment. Failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA) is the process of revising the practices as possible to identify potential failure modes in each activity, their root causes and effects on them. The purpose of this research is to analyze hazards and potential risks of work safety commonly occurred in high rise construction sites in Myanmar. Questionaries' are used for categorical data of hazards and potential risks to differentiate between real time and necessary control levels for work safety and introduce the applicable ways to be prevented. The research findings indicate the techniques to control and eliminate the hazards and potential risks through FMEA method and OH&S management system by identifying the critical work situations, the gaps between the control levels, understanding cross functional working relationship, standardizing safety norms and practices, reducing costs and increasing customers' satisfaction.
