Every activity involves risks, which can have adverse consequences on the health and safety of workers, property and environment. The uncontrolled risks can go over financial issues to legal and environmental issues. These consequences might affect companies not only for a short term but can have a long term effects. Hence, companies are imposed to be more cautious in protecting its profit and sustainability. Today companies are paying more attention to risk management. So to manage risks properly, first they should be well identified and evaluated. “What couldn’t be measured couldn’t be managed”. That requires safety engineers to choose the relevant analysis method. This paper aims to assess and rank risks inside ACO1 workshop of SIDER EL HADJAR Company, Algeria and propose safety measures to manage existing risks. Risks from insignificant to critical scale are found in the workplace which should be reduced and mitigated through appropriate safety measures.
