Creating a risk assessment
With Safety first, you can create professional risk assessments in a few clicks.
Get started by logging in to Safety First.
From you home screen, click “Risk Assessments”
You will now see a list of risk assessments. These are ones that you have done before, or they have been pre-loaded for you.
When we create a risk assessment, we generally just modify an existing one to what we need, or just reuse it as it is (it’s like making another copy of it to work on).
To find a risk assessment to start with, click “Search”.
On the search form, fill in the boxes to search by. You can use a previous project, or use the “description” box to search by task.
Then click “Search” at the bottom.
The list will be filtered to those risk assessments that match your specifications.
Find the document you want to use, and click the light blue “Use as Template” button.
You now review your risk assessment before printing it.
Complete the project details, and click “Next Stage”
Select the people who may be harmed (1) click “Select” to add them to the list (2) and then “Next Stage” to move on (3).
Review the hazards and click “Next Stage”.
Review the control measures and click “Next Stage”.
Assign each hazard a probability and severity and click “Next Stage”.
Allocate PPE to be worn during the task and click “Next Stage”.
Select a reason for review and click “Next Stage”.
Save the risk assessment by clicking “Confirm and Post Risk Assessment”
You will now see a screen where you can print or send your risk assessment.
