myhazard = document.formname.hazard.value;

if you want to get the value for checked checkbox,

myhazard = document.formname.hazard.checked?document.formname.hazard.value:'';

here's an example,

<!doctype html public "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<title>Author: Third Santor</title>
  function getCheckboxValues(obj){
    for(var i=0; i<obj.length; i++){
        if((obj.elements[i].type == 'checkbox') && (obj.elements[i].checked)){
<body topmargin="0" leftmargin="0" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0">
<form name="form1" method="post" action="" onsubmit="">
<input type="checkbox" name="chk1" value="value1">
<input type="checkbox" name="chk1" value="value2">
<input type="checkbox" name="chk1" value="value3">
<input type="button" value="Click" onclick="getCheckboxValues(this.form);">
