Task / Area Risk Assessment

occupational health and safety officerRisk assessments can be area or task based. Area risk assessments are used to record all the hazards in a work area, task risk assessments look in detail at the specific work activities. Site, groups of people at risk and locations of task can be identified. Hazards can be chosen from a reference list and assigned severity/probability values. The program calculates the maximum risk rating (Severity x Probability) for each hazard and uses this to calculate an overall risk rating for the assessment. The risk rating sets a status for the assessment. The program user can set the definitions for Severity, Probability and Risk Rating. Protective equipment can be selected from a library and added to the assessment together with the associated graphic symbols. The additional assessments can be cross-referenced to identify related assessments for the overall risk assessment. Corrective action steps can be assigned with target completion dates and costs. An authoriser can electronically sign off the risk assessment.

Additional Assessment

A series of optional questionnaire-based assessments guides you through the relevant regulations. At the end of each assessment the program analyses the responses to the questionnaire and makes comments or suggested corrective actions. The software can set up corrective actions. The program will calculate the percentage of non-conformances to the questionnaire thus allowing the user to compare one assessment with another. Corrective action steps can be set with target/actual completion dates and costs. Reports can keep track of actions due for completion and assessments due for authorisation or review.
