Abstract

Rising amount of generated waste is an increasing concern for the future generation potentially at risk. The purpose of this research was to identify the risks and opportunities associated with waste management practices in Malaysia TVET Institution as per requirements under ISO 9001:2015 Clause 6.1. Using Risk-Based Thinking (RBT), Preliminary Risk Assessment (PRA) and SWOT Analysis, this research analyzed the hazardous events of managing Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) and Hazardous Waste (HW). The risks associated with MSW divided into 5 categories; human damage, climate pollution, soil, air and water contamination. Whereas, HW risks US EPA characteristics were ignitable, corrosive, reactive and toxic. The findings presented in Risk Matrix (High, Medium or Low level), revealed that the top ranking risk for MSW was fatal diseases and misplacing SW4 for HW. The research recommended more ground works in RBT application as it involves thorough look at workplace to establish a most-to-least-critical importance ranking.
