  For a range of internal AND external information sources, outline how EACH source contributes to hazard identification or risk assessment Internal Sources:- Accident investigation reports:- Identifying the immediate, underlying and root causes which will indicate the weak points whether in safety management system or in unwanted conditions which will consider then in risk assessment process. Sickness absence records:- To check the frequent injuries location and types e.g. most of sickness absence related to MSDs so control measurements aren’t suitable in workplace or other controls which are needed to identify and assess the hazard in risk assessment process. Maintenance records:- To ensure that safety devices are in place, if there is on maintenance records that mean the probability and severity of the risk increased. Safety tours results: Safety tours consider as proactive measurement, to know safe and unsafe practices of employees, and knowledge of unsafe conditions (poor lighting ...etc.) which is important for risk assessment. Audit results :- To know the weak points of safety management system ( e.g. lack of supervision), as we know most types of work need to be well monitoring and supervised, so here the probability of risk increased automatically.  External Sources HSE guideline:- Guidelines gives you good information for most hazards and their consequences of the hazards (electricity hazards lead to secondary effects such as falling from height) so falling from height considers as one of hazards of electricity which is should be considered in risk assessment process. MSDS Gives you full information of chemicals and control measures for that chemical, which are useful for identifying hazards and assessing the risk. Insurance companies:- Usually gives feedbacks of your assessment that can be useful for assessing the risk to avoid reoccurrence of adverse events. Legislation :    Updated regularly, gives you full information about the hazards.    (E.g. asbestos) Control of Asbestos at Work Regulation 2002 has information about the how to deal with asbestos and then you can compare the control measures in your place with the legislation, which will help for assessing the risk. Manufacture instruction: Manufacture usually gives you a summary how you use the machine or equipment (e.g. frequent inspection of the machine must be every 3 months), if the frequent inspection as required from the manufacture was cancelled in the workplace, so the probability the risk will increase.
