Here you will find resources and information to help improve your worker’s skills in identifying and controlling the hazards they face on the worksite. If you already have a hazard assessment process in place, don’t feel you have to change to RADAR. You may want to use the resources on this page as a check of your own current system, or just to increase your hazard awareness by looking at things a bit differently. Whether you are a contractor, manager or supervisor, using the RADAR tools can certainly help reduce the risk of injury or illness in your operation. If this information is totally new to you, there are some simple steps you can take to begin to use the RADAR approach.

Being in the bight is a way of saying that where a worker is located exposes them to risk. Staying in the clear, or avoiding the bight, is important to continually monitor. Over time, workers can become complacent with their surroundings or tasks, and that can result in increased risk.
Being careful to make sure you and your co-workers are always in the clear is necessary to ensure everyone can complete their tasks and make it home safely at the end of the shift.
