Now I know we've all heard of the standard risk management tools for operational activites, the JSA, JHA, TRA, PRA, HazID, HazOP, LOPA Study, erc, etc.
It's a long list of acronyms for the average safety guy to remember!
Well, now there is a new one - well, new to me anyway!
KYT. I must admit that I'd never heard of it before. But it stands for "Kiken Yochi Training", which in Japan equates roughly to what we would call a cross between a JSA and a tool-box meeting.
K= Kiken = "hazard".
Y = Yochi = "prediction".
T = training.
Like a typical JSA, the objective of KYT is to identify hazards, identify and predict incident and consequence potential and identify and select appropriate controls.
Sounds good to me.
