Workplace Safety & Health : Worksite Assessment Checklist

Workplace Safety & Health : Worksite Assessment Checklist

II. WORKSITE ANALYSIS



A-1. Hazard identification
(Expert survey)



Comprehensive expert surveys are conducted regularly
and result in corrective action and updated hazard inventories.

Comprehensive expert surveys are conducted periodically
and drive appropriate corrective action.

Comprehensive expert surveys are conducted, but
corrective actions sometimes lag.

Expert surveys in response to accidents, complaints,
or compliance activity only.

No comprehensive surveys have been conducted.





A-2. Hazard identification
(Change analysis)

Every planned or new facility, process, material,
or equipment is fully reviewed by a competent team, along with
affected workers.



Every planned or new facility, process, material,
or equipment is fully reviewed by a competent team.

High hazard planned or new facility, process, material
or equipment are reviewed.

Hazard reviews of planned or new facilities, processes,
materials, or equipment are problem driven.

No system for hazard review of planned or new facilities
exists.





A-3. Hazard identification
(Job and process analysis)

A current hazard analysis exists for all jobs, processes,
and material; it is understood by all employees; and employees
have had input into the analysis for their jobs.

A current hazard analysis exists for all jobs, processes,
and material and it is understood by all employees.



A current hazard analysis exists for all jobs, processes,
or phases and is understood by many employees.

A hazard analysis program exists, but few are aware
of it.

There is no routine hazard analysis system in place.





A-4. Hazard identification
(Inspection)

Employees and supervisors are trained, conduct routine
joint inspections, and all items are corrected.

Inspections are conducted and all items are corrected;
repeat hazards are seldom found.

Inspections are conducted and most items are corrected,
but some hazards are still uncorrected.



An inspection program exists, but corrective action
is not complete; hazards remain uncorrected.

There is no routine inspection program in place
and many hazards can be found.





B. Hazard Reporting
System

A system exists for hazard reporting, employees
feel comfortable using it, and employees feel comfortable correcting
hazards on their own initiative.

A system exists for hazard reporting and employees
feel comfortable using it.



A system exists for hazard reporting and employees
feel they can use it, but the system is slow to respond.

A system exists for hazard reporting but employees
find it unresponsive or are unclear how to use it.

There is no hazard reporting system and/or employees
are not comfortable reporting hazards.





C. Accident/Incident
Investigation

All loss-producing incidents and near-misses are
investigated for root cause with effective prevention.

All OSHA-reportable incidents are investigated and
effective prevention is implemented.

OSHA-reportable incidents are generally investigated;
accident cause and/correction may be inadequate.



Some investigation of incidents takes place, but
root cause is seldom identified and correction is spotty.

Injuries are either not investigated or investigation
is limited to report writing required for compliance.





D. Injury/illnesses
analysis

Data trends are fully analyzed and displayed, common
causes are communicated, management ensures prevention; and
employees are fully aware of trends, causes, and means of prevention.

Data trends are fully analyzed and displayed, common
causes are communicated, and management ensures prevention.



Data is centrally collected and analyzed and common
causes are communicated to supervisors.

Data is centrally collected and analyzed but not
widely communicated for prevention.

Little or no effort is made to analyze data for
trends, causes, and prevention.
