Stress is, unfortunately, becoming more and more widespread in our day to day life, this is especially true in the workplace.
Managing your health and safety can add to this stress, especially if you don’t have the knowledge and experience to back this up with. THSP have designed an interactive Risk Assessment Builder which can help take some of this stress away.
Risk Assessment will never go away. So those responsible for ensuring the safety of their colleagues will always be looking for ways to simplify their task, but at the same time want to know that what they have produced will hold up in a court of law should an accident occur.
With an easy step by step process that guides the assessor through each stage of the assessment and intuitive selection processes, the end result is a comprehensive, accurate assessment of the task at hand.
THSP’s Health and Safety Director, Chris Ivey says, “Cut down the paperwork by carrying out a single assessment for a task, rather than having a compilation of documents for each activity. Not only will this eliminate the repetition of control measures, our Risk Assessment Builder (RAB) is designed to challenge the assessor to think about the process prior to assessing the risk, and if any elements of the task can be eliminated at that point, people will be safer in their workplace.
“The process is simple and the programme intuitive. Then once the assessment is complete, action plans based on control measures and responsibilities, can be emailed directly to your staff or contractor. The Assessments can be viewed on any device – phone, tablet or PC.
“The assessment shows clearly how much the residual risk rating has been reduced by implementing the additional control measures, and if you consider this is not sufficient before you proceed with the work, you simply amend the assessment to ensure it is designed to make the risk acceptable.”
A risk assessment is a living document designed to make workplaces safer. However, should anyone make amendments to an assessment using the THSP RAB, the name of the assessor becomes that of the new user, as does the responsibility for its accuracy.
An annual subscription allows for five users including one administrator, and additional users can be added when required allowing the creation of as many assessments as needed. Company logos can be added to help staff take ownership of their assessment.
