A safety hazard is anything that could harm you or other people. For example, a knife is a hazard because it might cause a cut. A wet floor is a hazard because it might cause you to fall.
A safety risk is the chance, or likelihood, that you’ll get hurt. For example, if you work in the agriculture or forestry sector, you’re at greater risk of injury than if you work in the business sector.
