It’s due to the activity in the warehouse using lifting equipment such as a crane, forklift and truckloads which is that equipment is widely used not only in warehouse industry but also used in various public infrastructure. Therefore, warehouse safety has evolved into public safety. So, it needed a risk assessment. Risk assessment was the most important stage in the field of occupational health and safety. A good risk assessment can improve the competitiveness of enterprises and the proper handling of risks for achieving company goals. To minimize that risk, then in this study did determinant the hazards and assess with Fine Kinney risk assessment method. This study was the descriptive study with a systematic review. Literature related to identifying hazards and risk assessment acquired from the research report, thesis, journal and also supporting books. Data took from 2003-2017. Data that has been collected then make it classified to determine the main criteria, sub-criteria and alternatives of hazards. Then, the risk score is obtained by formula W.T Fine. The result showed in the 1st hazard group level, the most important hazard was a physical hazard.
