For instance, when considering the impending risks and hazards of a process in determining how much exactitude is required in making or building an operating procedure, risk-based approach or techniques are implemented instead of hazard-based approaches even though in designing of most procedures, understanding the hazard attributes is the primary determinant (CCPS, 2007).
Risk-based approaches of the management of occupational safety, health and wellbeing specifically in a process management system, as defined by Grossel (2008) is a process that uses risk-based methodologies to implement strategies which “commensurate with the risk-based need for process safety activities, availability of resources, and existing safety culture to design, upgrade and correct safety management activities” (Grossel, 2008, p127).
