HEALTH AND HYGIENE RISK ASSESSMENTS
Risk assessments can range from:
- Level 1 qualitative risk assessment (e.g. JSAs, HSAs, take 5s);
- Level 2 a semi-quantitative risk assessment (scenario driven and includes a risk matrix, current controls and current risk, a risk rating and the potential for extra controls and an associated residual risk rating); and
- Level 3 a quantitative risk assessment.
The output is a risk register, which lists of potential hazards and associated risks that are rated before and after controls have been implemented. The register is an excellent resource to provide a snap shot of all of the risks at a location or organisation, tracking the progress of controls and presenting a history of risk management.
OHMS Hygiene will work with clients to develop their risk registers and to ensure their compliance with applicable legislation on their journey to industry best practice.
RISK-BASED HYGIENE MANAGEMENT PLANS - RBHMPs
The DMP (Department of Mines and Petroleum) requires mine sites to carry out a structured health and hygiene risk assessment of their occupational health hazards, and develop a risk-based hygiene management plan (RBHMP); with an annual review.
OHMS Hygiene has extensive experience in providing risk based management plans and will prepare and deliver a RBHMP ready for submission and approval by the DMP.
HSE MANAGEMENT PLANS
Health, safety and environmental management plans are developed to provide a clear, unified approach to managing health and safety risks on site for all employees, contractors and visitors. They will allow for individuals to conduct their work in a safe and healthy manner by being able to identify and control hazards that may arise in their daily activities.
OHMS Hygiene can ensure that all management practices on site are aligned with the relevant Acts and Regulations.
HEALTH IMPACT ASSESSMENTS
A Health Impact Assessment (HIA) is a combination of procedures or methods by which a policy, programme or project may be judged as to the effects it may have on the health of a population. OHMS Hygiene has the expertise and experience to conduct a HIAs for any and all health risks. This includes dangerous goods and hazardous substances.
RISK WORK SHOP FACILITATIONS
OHMS Hygiene staff are available to facilitate HSE risk assessment workshops to determine the HSE hazards associated with the activities in question. Risk workshops can be undertaken for any stage of an operation from pre-construction to operation and maintenance. Workshops can even be conducted prior to any works or construction being initiated, the requirement is for experienced, key operators that understand the expected processes.
