Safety 5 pocket risk assessment tool
ARTICLE
Blasting Services has developed a system to improve safety that they have issued to all their employees. The system is based on a five point safety guide and simple traffic light system that enables employees to determine and assess the hazards they face in the workplace. They can determine whether they are working safely or need to contact a supervisor.

The booklet contains advice on the following five areas:

-Identifying hazards and risks
-Probability Calculator
-Procedures
-Quality Statement
-Personal protective equipment.

The guide uses a clear traffic light system so employees know what to do. It works as follows:

Red – Work stops and all supervisors are contacted
Amber – Supervisor’s advice may be required
Green – Workers are free to continue working.

This system has left everyone clear on safety issues on Blasting Services sites.

This entry was highly commended.
