What is Risk Analysis & Reporting ?

Risk analysis is the process of defining and analyzing the dangers to individuals, businesses and government agencies posed by potential natural and human-caused adverse events.

What is Controlling Risk?

  • Risk Avoidance – this strategy involves a conscious decision on the part of the organisation to avoid completely a particular risk by discontinuing the operation producing the risk e.g. the replacing a hazardous chemical by one with less or no risk potential.
  • Risk retention – The risk is retained in the organisation where any consequent loss is financed by the company. There are two aspects to consider here, risk retention with knowledge and risk retention without knowledge.
  • Risk Transfer – this refers to the legal assignment of the costs of certain potential losses from one party to another. The most common way is by insurance.
  • Risk Reduction – here the risks are systematically reduced through control measures, according to the hierarchy of risk control described in earlier sections.

risk matrix is a matrix that is used during risk assessment to define the level of risk by considering the category of probability or likelihood against the category of consequence severity. This is a simple mechanism to increase visibility of risks and assist management decision making

What is Operations?

It involves the responsibility of ensuring that business operations are efficient in terms of using as few resources as needed and effective in terms of meeting customer requirements.

What is FS E Data?

E Data : Measurement is a key step in any management process and forms the basis of continual improvement. If measurement is not carried out correctly, the effectiveness of the health and safety management system is undermined and there is no reliable information to inform managers how well the health and safety risks are controlled. Organizations need to recognize that there is no single reliable measure of health and safety performance. What is required is a ‘basket’ of measures or a ‘balanced scorecard’, providing information on a range of health and safety activities. As organizations recognize the importance of managing health and safety they become aware of the problems with using injury and ill-health statistics alone as the only measure of health and safety performance. “Contact FS TO PROVIDE HSE Data Collection System”

What is E JM System ?

E JM System doc :For every journey one should ask if the journey is actually necessary; the safest journey is the one not taken. If the journey is necessary it is advised to consider other, safer, transportation options than car travel. This may include train or bus transport.When making a road journey, whether it’s for business or pleasure, your chances of arriving safely are greatly increased by careful planning. Fail to plan adequately and your chances of being involved in an incident will increase.

A Journey Management Plan is typically a set process that you follow for planning and undertaking road transport journeys in compliance with HSSE requirements, with the goal of arriving safely. Every country and company will operate different standards but as a general rule, it is wise to put in place a Journey Management Plan for trips of more than 4.5 hours.

What is FS E PTW doc?

E. PTW doc :Instructions or procedures are adequate for most work activities, but some require extra care.  A ‘permit to work’ is a more formal system stating exactly what work is to be done and when, and which parts are safe.  A responsible person should assess the work and check safety at each stage. The people doing the job sign the permit to show that they understand the risks and precautions necessary.

Permits are effectively a means of communication between site management, plant supervisors and operators, and those who carry out the work. Examples of high-risk jobs where a written ‘permit to work’ procedure may need to be used include hot work such as welding, vessel entry, cutting into pipework carrying hazardous substances, and work that requires electrical or mechanical isolation.  It is also a means of coordinating different work activities to avoid conflicts.

It should be emphasized, however, that a ‘permit to work’ is not a replacement for robust risk assessment, but can help bring the risk assessment ‘to life’, at the sharp end, where it matters.

What is FS site Safety Doc ?

E Site Safety Audit Doc :Generally, a safety audit is a structured process whereby information is collected relating to the efficiency, effectiveness, and reliability of the total health and safety management system of a company. Safety audits are conducted in compliance with legislation, and are used as a guide for designing plans for corrective actions within a health and safety program. A safety audit examines and determines whether or not a company’s daily activities and processes conform to their planned health and safety arrangements as well as government laws. An audit further identifies whether or not the planned arrangements are implemented effectively, and are suitable to achieve the organization’s or company’s health and safety policy objectives. Often it is a failure in health and safety management that results in a serious incident. Safety audits assist in identifying failures within a system, process, or program and the information gathered helps to determine the best course of corrective action.

  • Safety audits are beneficial because they:
  • Promote constant review of systems to ensure that they do not become weakened by habit
  • Facilitate planned improvements to programs, policies, and procedures
  • Help to identify weaknesses in human resources departments
  • Help to demonstrate management’s dedication to employee health and safety

What is E Accident and Investigation doc ?

E Accident & Investigation doc :Monitor the effectiveness of the measures you put in place to control the risks in your workplace. As part of your monitoring, you should investigate incidents to ensure that corrective action is taken, learning is shared and any necessary improvements are put in place. Investigations will help you to:

  • identify why your existing control measures failed and what improvements or additional measures are needed
  • plan to prevent the incident from happening again
  • point to areas where your risk assessment needs reviewing
  • improve risk control in your workplace in the future
  • Reporting incidents should not stop you from carrying out your own investigation to ensure risks in your workplace are controlled efficiently.
  • An investigation is not an end in itself, but the first step in preventing future adverse eventsthat includes:
  • accident: an event that results in injury or ill health
  • incident:
    • near miss: an event not causing harm, but has the potential to cause injury or ill health (in this guidance, the term near miss will include dangerous occurrences)
    • undesired circumstance: a set of conditions or circumstances that have the potential to cause injury or ill health, eg untrained nurses handling heavy patients

  •  Use of elastic bandages
  •  Removal of foreign bodies not embedded in the eye
  •  Use of non-prescription medicine, or the use of a single dose of a prescription medication on the first visit to a medic or doctor to treat a minor injury or discomfort
  •  Negative x-ray diagnosis (no fractures or broken bones detected)
  •  Any other incident requiring first aid attention

* If after reading these definitions you are unsure if an incident is a First Aid or a Medical Treatment Only, it should be classified as a Medical Treatment Only.

Why Is Health Management Important ?

Healthcare management is the profession that provides leadership and direction to organizations that deliver personal health services.

Health care system an organized plan of health services. The term usually is used to refer to the system or program by which health care is  made  available  to  the  population  and  financed by  government,  private  enterprise,  or  both.

What is Expect the Unexpected in Safety ?

The advice “expect the unexpected” can lead to a great deal of criticism. For example, if one can expect something to happen, then it is (technically) no longer unexpected…and so on. Setting all the hair-splitting aside, to expect the unexpected is to anticipate the possibilities of events occurring in advance of them actually occurring.  For example… If you are preparing to drive somewhere during the rush hour you can expect the possibility of minor accidents and delays and plan accordingly by leaving early, taking another route, or having an alternative route in mind that you can take if you encounter problems. The mere act of thinking about a traffic problem in advance can improve situational awareness because it can help you capture clues about what is on the horizon.

What IS KPI?

Key Performance Indicator is a measurable value that demonstrates how effectively a company is achieving key business objectives. Organizations use KPI’s at multiple levels to evaluate their success at reaching targets. High-level KPIs may focus on the overall performance of the enterprise, while low-level KPIs may focus on processes in departments

What is Safety Indicator ?

The objective of measuring leading & lagging indicators is to assess safety performance, and determine what needs to be done to improve the safety culture.

Lagging indicators measure the end result of OHS processes, policies and procedures. They’re a record of things that have already happened. Since they record things after the fact, they inform a reactive health and safety culture. # workplace incidents. # disabling injuries. WCB premium

Safety Inspections vs Safety Audits

Safety inspections look for hazards, risks, and other tactics that might prevent a company from operating safely. Meanwhile, safety audits examine whether programs and strategies are meeting a company’s goals. Both are important components of a workplace safety plan.

Evacuation Drills & Head Counts?

Potential emergencies , such as fire, explosion, chemical releases and all other emergencies require owners, guests and employees to evacuate the building. An Emergency Evacuation Plan (EEP) and adequate occupant familiarity with a building minimize threats to life and property. This plan applies to all emergencies where occupants may need to evacuate for personal safety.

Under this plan, employees will be informed of:

  • The plan’s purpose
  • Preferred means of reporting fires and other emergencies
  • Emergency escape procedures and route assignments
  • Procedures to account for all employees after emergency evacuation has been completed
  • Rescue and medical duties for those employees who perform them
  • The alarm system .

Why Manage Safety ?

There are three main reasons why it is so important to manage safety in the workplace:

  • Morally:  No one should be subject to injury or illness from their job or workplace, it may be obvious that everyone should be reasonably protected but, are they?
  • Financially: Employees who have their health, safety and well-being properly protected will have fewer absences, greater morale and increased productivity.
  • Legally: Employers are legally responsible for everyone in the workplace, it is their duty to ensure the health, safety and well-being of employees whilst at work.

What is Environment Management?

Environmental management system (EMS) refers to the management of an organization’s environmental programs in a comprehensive, systematic, planned and documented manner.
