The Hazards section of V5 Traceability allows customers to create hazards that reflect the risks associated with handling a particular product or commodity.

These Hazards can then be set up to warn operators of the dangers of a particular task. This allows adequate precautions to be taken to keep all members of the workforce safe.

This page provides a basic overview of the ‘Hazards’ section in Control Center, and will help guide you through the various columns that define its settings. For a more in-depth look at how to set up and use ‘Hazards’, click here.
