Hazard and Vulnerability Assessment –Step 3
After deciding on the location of your planning project, the next step is conducting a hazard
analysis. You must first understand the threats to your organization to accomplish the planning
process. Your written product (see page guidance below) should demonstrate that you
understand both the hazards and their consequences that may impact your organization. This may
require you to get input from those individuals working at the facility.
In compiling your document, you should review and demonstrate your knowledge of at least the
first four (4) steps of the hazards analysis process as discussed in class and from your class notes.
Extra credit consideration will be given to those addressing 5-7. Not guaranteed, but considered.
An excerpt of the process is provided below.
Hazard and Vulnerability Analysis Process
1. Identify the hazards
2. Profile each hazard
3. Determine vulnerability
4. Determine risk
5. Determine consequences/scenarios
6. Identify capabilities and shortfalls
7. Apply strategic planning process
Suggested format for the analysis (Step 3) follows:
Requirement – 3-5 pages, single-spaced, 1” margins, Times New Roman or Arial, 12
point font. For heading/subheadings use distinctive font style, e.g., bold, italic, etc.
to make it easier to read. Include double or triple spaces between hazard
General description/background of the analysis
Description of the facility(s) to include physical description
Identify and provide a rank prioritized (by rank order or by low, moderate, and high
ratings) listing of hazards to include 1) name of hazard; 2) hazard description and
assessment summary as it specifically relates to the organization/facility(s). Please
identify and describe hazards that are appropriate for the facility.
(For example, if you
were doing a plan for a wood working shop on the coast of Florida you would include
information about how hurricanes might impact the business, but should also include
hazards such as wood dust, dangerous wood working equipment that might cause
personal injury, etc.).
Step 3 should be submitted in .doc, .docx or .pdf form via SafeAssign in the Assignments
Folder.If you have any questions, please contact your instructor as soon as possible.
Tips for Success:
1) Hazard Identification and Profiling: If you have less than 4 hazards, you will want to
consider whether you have identified macro- and micro-hazards that the business faces. It
is okay to identify a large number of hazards. However, you only want to discuss the
most relevant ones in Step 3.
2) Writing your Analysis: Make sure you relate each hazard to the business by explaining
how and why it poses a threat to the business in question. Generally, you should have the
same amount of analysis for each hazard. In other words, you shouldn’t have 3
paragraphs of analysis on one hazard and only 2 sentences on another
