  • Hazard Report Form. One of the main complaints we get from employees and contractors during the interview phase of safety audits is that when they report something, like a hazard, it is either forgotten about, ignored or not actioned for a long time and they never receive recognition for reporting the issue or feedback about progress with resolution or control. Many companies have introduced a formal hazard reporting system to overcome this problem. The system incorporates a form similar to the one available below and a procedures whereby the form is recorded, commented on by those responsible and feedback given to the originator. You’ll see that ours has an important addition – adding the issue and controls to any site safety checklists that are regularly undertaken to ensure that the hazard has been controlled appropriately.

  • National Emergency Risk Assessment Guidelines (more info from their website HERE)

National Emergency Risk Assessment Guidelines (NERAG)

This DRAFT is one of the simplest, yet all encompassing, guides to the principles of risk management and the risk management tools involved that I have come across. Produced for Emergency Services personnel as part of the the National Emergency Risk Assessment Guidelines (NERAG) Project is a key step in the Implementation Plan for the National Risk Assessment Framework that has been developed to meet the outcomes sought by Reform Commitment One (RC1) from the Council of Australian Governments’ (COAG) report on natural disaster mitigation, relief and recovery in Australia. Although is used to assess disasters and emergencies, the principals and tools are relevant to any situation or workplace hazard. It covers the use of tools such as ALARP, Risk Assessment Matrix, Bow Tie Diagram, Risk Curves, Risk Registers, Brainstorming and Risk Workshops with some simple examples. Download Here:
