Personal level risk assessment (PLRA) is an initiative to encourage individuals to assess the risks associated with their daily occupational and routine activities. It promotes proactive identification and management of potential hazards, such as chemical exposure and proper handling of paint products. By conducting PLRA, individuals prioritize their safety and mitigate risks during paint-related tasks.

It aims to promote personal safety and well-being by evaluating potential hazards and taking appropriate measures to mitigate or eliminate risks. The goal of PLRA is to eliminate or minimize the likelihood of accidents, injuries, and negative health impacts, fostering a safer environment in occupational settings.
