Kiken Yochi

Graham Marshall - Tuesday, January 03, 2012

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.
