With your question I am assuming you are talking about the new requirements on Other Risks and Other Opportunities rather than OH&S Risks and OH&S Opportunities which are associated with Hazards identified in the organization. These new requirements ask you to think of other strategic-level risks that could impact your ability to prevent injury and ill health in the workplace, as well as other opportunities to improve the performance of the OHSMS.

Unfortunately, this will be very unique to your specific organization and not just generic to road construction, so I can not just provide you with a listing. For instance, a strategic risk could include finding out a supplier was going out of business which might affect your access to safety equipment, and a strategic opportunity could include a supplier developing a new machine that could positively impact safety in your organization. It is these strategic-level risks and opportunities that you need to include in your planning for the OHSMS.

For more information on risks and opportunities in the ISO 45001 standard, see the articles:
