The Covid-19 pandemic that has occurred since the early 2020s has changed lifestyles and business processes a lot, one of which is the increase in online shopping. Consequently, the need for space to store goods increases. Distributor is a business unit that does not have a production process so that the warehouse becomes the main factor that supports the success of a business. Each business unit has potential hazards that can be risky, varying from low to high. This research aimed to identify and analyze occupational safety and health risks in the warehouse territory, particularly in the distribution sector. Hazard identification and risk assessment were carried out using the HIRA-AI method using the AS/NZS 43600:1999 standard. Risk is categorized into 3 categories i.e. low, medium, and high. The results showed that 15 activity categories in the warehouse territory consisted of 38 hazards and 42 risks. To be specific, there are 25 low-risk activities, 14 medium-risk activities, and one high-risk activity. Furthermore, from 40 occupational safety and health risks, there were 19 residual risks generated. To conclude, risk identification and analysis help organizations in achieving their optimum goals.
