Hazard identification is the first and, in many ways, the most important step in a risk assessment. If a hazard is not identified, it is unlikely to be managed effectively.
Different industries, applications and lifecycle timings demand different solutions and many different tools for identifying hazards have been developed. Some have wide applicability, others are very narrow in scope or have been developed for one-off applications, equally the level of detail and documentation ranges from the very extensive to the bare minimum.
