Our safety consultants calculate operational risks and provide tips to help you reduce the chance of these causing harm.

Why You Need to Perform a Risk Assessment

Risk assessments are required by law, but most importantly they protect workers and businesses in case of any undesirable incidents occurring. Often times employees will work in situations where there is potential for harm to occur. This needs to be identified by a business and procedures must be put in place to reduce the chance of an accident happening. The Compact Solutions team are well equipped to assist you in targeting potential areas of risk and providing you with expert advice to implement safe procedures as well as upgrading equipment to comply with requirements as set out in the machine safety standards.

Compact Solutions Guide to Risk Management

Our operational risk calculation works through various steps that conclude in a certified safety plan in your workplace. In the beginning we will determine machine limits allowing us to identify hazards, assess the possible risk, evaluate the chance and severity of risks and implement a safety validation technique that tests the success of the procedure we’ve introduced. If for any reason the machinery is not completely free from risk factors we also offer education around possible hazards, gearing your employees with the necessary skills to operate machines safely.

Our Methods

Identify occupational risks

We understand that you and your employees know the everyday “ins and outs” of your business better than anyone else. So we always strive to work together with organisations to offer the best solutions to suit your workplace. Through this procedure, together we’re able to identify hazards (the event that can possibly result in harm) and evaluate the risk (the chance of the harmful event occurring).

Identifying who is at Risk

It’s important when creating a health and safety procedure that those who are at risk are noted. Whether it’s those who are working closely with equipment, or even the public, our team are able to identify who in particular is at risk to a potential hazard. This is an essential part of handling risk management because it provides information about who needs to be protected in your safety solution.

Gauging Potential Risks and Supplying a Safety Procedure

Once the risks have been identified our team are able to analyse the hazard and estimate the likelihood of it occurring. Following the identification of those at risk, we help you put procedures in place to either; completely remove the hazard or minimise the chance of an accident happening.

Record Hazards

Creating a written record of the risk assessment is a legal requirement in New Zealand. Through this you are able to show you have identified the possible risks in your workplace and created protocol to reduce the chance of harm occurring.
