Energy Wheel

What is the Energy Wheel?

The Energy Wheel is a simple tool that we can use when talking about hazards on site that has the potential to dramatically increase their identification.

It is estimated that up to 30% more hazards have been identified by those using it.

The Energy Wheel is a simple diagram that shows ten different types of energy. Each type of energy can be associated with many of the different hazards found on a building site. It makes hazard identification easier and more accurate so that those supervising and working on site can come up with better ways of dealing with
the hazard.
