assessment to verify potential risks. To ensure the safety and health for workers and pursuit sustainable
development of the enterprise, hazard identification and risk assessment were carried out for five
departments of the distillery. The assessing schedules include routine and non-routine activities. The
Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment Forms were recorded with indicating the existing protective
measures to identify the hazards. The risk level is divided into five groups: the Class 1 and 2 are
"unacceptable risks", the Class 3 and 4 are "temporarily accepting risks" and the Class 5 is "acceptable
risk". According to the risk matrix rating score results, the potential risk from the factory operating
hazards was sorted and the control methods for emergency procedures were deployed.
The "acceptable risk" of the distillery operating activity was 58.1% from t the risk matrix score
results and the "temporarily accepted risk" was 41.9%. No "unacceptable risk" was found. The first
three potential hazard risk operations orders are "folder, roll, crush", "collision ", and "fall, slipping".
The hazard principle, possible occurrence places, and the preventive and emergency treatments
were conducted, so the employees could understand the hazards during operations to ensure their
safety and health. There is only one year investigation for the distillery’s hazard identification and
risk assessment. A complete risk assessment information could be established if more data could be
collected and analyzed. To improve the occupational safety and health issues, it needs to enhance the
safety and hygiene standards for the distillery as a sustainable goal.
