RISK MANAGEMENT

Risk Assessments reinforce workplace safety, thereby minimising accidents and incidents and combined with on-going training increases competence allowing positive management of change for strong business continuity.

Guidance on Downloads

We have categorised downloads with a “Usability Factor” (i.e., Easy, Medium, Hard). Whilst “easy” should be fairly straight forward to implement, additional support may be required for the “medium” and/or “hard” aspects. The latter will largely depend upon the resources within your organisation, skill set availability and relative experience.

  Risk Assessment
General Hazards Checklist

This excel version offers an insight into common hazards found in the workplace. Ask yourself - Do these hazard exist? Do we have a means for deciding if they matter? What would be the consequences if the hazard was realised? Are there controls in place? Are they adequate and used? Are more control measures required? Is supervision adequate and is there any information training requirement?

HAZOP Technique and Methodology

A very useful article on Hazop methodology and technique. The HAZOP process is based on the principle that a team approach to hazard analysis will identify more problems than when individuals working separately combine results. The HAZOP team is made up of individuals with varying backgrounds and expertise. The expertise is brought together during HAZOP sessions and through a collective brainstorming effort that stimulates creativity and new ideas, a thorough review of the process under consideration is made.

Integrated Risk and Aspects Assessment Model

For Saferworking, we developed this excel file to assist with qualitative and quantitative risk assessments for integrated HSE Management Systems. The scoring baseline is large and hence the ability to pick clearly high category items becomes a little easier when you have a lot of them (typically greater than 500). If you require further support, please contact us directly.

Quantitative Assessment of Environmental Aspects

Developed by Saferworking, this model provides guidance on how to quantitatively assess Environmental Aspects. Organisations may adopt and/or modify the model to meet specific requirements. Setting the "cut off" criteria for significance is pivotal for success and factors such as resources (financial, people etc) must be taken into account. For an advanced and integrated (Environmental, Health and Safety) model, please refer to the excel spreadsheet also provided as a download. If you require further support, please contact us directly.

Confined Space

Confined spaces are enclosed spaces that are large enough for workers to enter and perform work assignments, but have limited openings to enter and exit and are not designed for continuous employee occupancy. If a confined space poses certain hazards, it could be deemed a "permit-required" confined space which would require the entrant to obtain a permit before entering such a space. This presentation provides a good grounding in Hazards and Entry Permit Aspects.

Dropped Objects

During all lifting an installation activity there is a possibility that the lifted object will be lost and drop onto other equipment on the platform, the barge or the sea. The consequence of a falling object might be harm to personnel, structural damage, damage of equipment and possible also release of hydrocarbons resulting in hazardous environments. This presentation (developed for Oil and Gas Drilling Operations) provides an overview on the consequences of dropped objects. Specifically, examples considered are dropping a small object, dropped object onto a stabbing board, dropped object elevator bell guides, gauge cable parted and dropped objects from the derrick.

Electrical Safety

Electricity is everywhere and it's a very useful part of our lives. Yet it only takes one oldor poorly wired plug or connection to prove just how powerful it is. This presentation provides an overview, looks at responsibilities within an organisation, controlling administrative and engineering hazards. There is a brief overview on PPE and Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs).

Knife Safety - Utility Knife Procedure

We are grateful to Mr Pieter Matthyser for sharing this superb document on Utility Knife Directive. In Pieter's words..."The whole idea was to control the combination of user and knife and to reveal alternatives. You would be surprised at how many people are unfamiliar with the right tool for the right job".

Office Safety Observation Checklist

A basic and simple to deploy template for Office Safety Observations. Applications are based upon selecting a small team within the office environment who are then provided training and a schedule to conduct periodic inspections. Actions are recorded and tracked for closure. The checklist can of course be expanded and enhanced to meet specific requirements with your workplace. Overall, a good primer!

Permit to Work - Word Document

Where proposed work is identified as having a high risk, strict controls are required. The work must be carried out against previously agreed safety procedures, a ‘permit-to-work' system. The permit-to-work is a documented procedure that authorises certain people to carry out specific work within a specified time frame. It sets out the precautions required to complete the work safely, based on a risk assessment. It describes what work will be done and how it will be done; the latter can be detailed in a ‘method statement'.

Safety Observation Reporting

This is a simple to deploy template for a SafetyObservation Programme. Generally, located throughout the facility as smallcards (or carried in person), observations are captured by any employee,collected and corrective actions followed up. The use of a reward orrecognition also enhances the programme performance.

Task Based Risk Assessment

Task Based Risk Assessment (TBRA) is fundamental to reducing the likelihood of accidents at work and it has been identified as a key area to be addressed to promote safety improvement in the workplace. This presentation focuses on TBRA, tools (including checklists), hazards and hazard effects. The presentation also includes a completed exercise which looks into a violent reaction of magnesium oxide and hydrochloric acid, which resulted in a severe boil over and expulsion of materials from a reactor.
