Lessons include:


  • HITRA roles and responsibilities
  • HITRA prerequisites
  • Health, safety, security, environment, hazard identification, and risk assessment / mitigation
  • Equipment and forms required
  • Supporting documents / related procedures


Procedure for conducting a new HITRA, including:

  • Form the team
  • Identify permit covered tasks and task hazards
  • Identify hazard effects
  • Determine probabilities and initial risk level
  • Identify control measures and mitigations
  • Determine residual risk
  • Specification of work monitoring requirements
  • Obtain approvalsImplement control measures
  • Workforce acceptance
  • Additions and changes
  • Using a previously developed HITRA
