Background: What-If is a systemic approach tool based on teamwork that enables to identify and assess systematic deviations in the work process, humanitarian performances and equipment defects by brainstorming ways. Because Yazd province has multiple ceramic and tile factories, this study was done to evaluate effectiveness of control measures to reduce the risk level of work-related hazards in Ceramic Industry Methods: This study was before-after (quasi-experimental) study. Among the Ceramic factories in Yazd province, one factory was selected as a sample, after an initial assessment by expert team, corrective strategies were implemented, and Risk Assessment Code 2 (RAC2) Obtained. Data was analysis by SPSS 16. Results: 107 dangerous were identified in all units, the lowest and highest risks identified was related to the guarding unit and the maintenance unit respectively. Number of acceptable risk before and after the intervention, the lowest acceptable risk and unacceptable risk was reached from 7 to 90, 85 to 17 and 15 to 0 respectively. Conclusions: The results showed that the combined engineering- management actions had been affected more than each of these measures alone in reduction the risk code number. By using this method, the risk at hazardous environments can be reduced or controlled and it was an ideal risk management tool for all industries alike
