Most accidents that happen in construction and related industries are fall accidents. People often underestimate the risk of falling, because the job will only take a few minutes. Therefore there is a number of proper precautions that need to be taken before someone enters an unsafe work area at height. One of those precautions is taking a Last Minute Risk Analysis (LMRA).
What is a LMRA?
A Last Minute Risk Analysis is a short and final assessment at the workplace, filled out by workers. Often a LMRA is a short checklist that has a few common subjects; safety, health and environment. The purpose of a LMRA is to create awareness and exclude potential risks.
