What is a Hazard?

The Hazards workflow provides information on characteristics, areas or facilities on a property that could cause danger or risk. These are identified on the property map to help keep visitors, workers and contractors safe.

Hazards can only be added from within an individual property, learn how to navigate to a property here.


When you first navigate to a property you can see the boundary of the property visible in its spatial location.

When you navigate to the Hazards workflow, a detailed spatial view of the hazards on the property will display including a list of the hazards in the sidebar.

From here you can click in to view individual hazard attributes.

Use the Next Feature button to effortlessly move between hazards.

Types of Hazards

There are three types of drawing methods that can be used to identify hazards on the property depending on their nature and location

  1. Point is used when there’s just a single location for the hazard such as a disposal pit or chemical shed

  2. Line is used for hazards such as drains or overhead powerlines

  3. Area is used for hazards that relate to an area of the property such as no go areas or gullies
