Risk assessment

Risk assessment is a systematic review of what might cause undesirable incidents and what consequences these may have for the working environment. A risk assessment must also identify measures that form a basis for reducing risk.

Planning

Good planning is an important part of the risk assessment.

Good planning of the risk assessment will make the work easier later.

The planning consists of:

  • Problem definition: Formulate a clear purpose for the risk assessment.
  • Information gathering and organisation: Clarifies what resources are needed (time, people), the assumptions and demarcations of the risk assessment. A risk assessment is performed by a work group. How should the result (risk pattern) be presented?
  • Choice of method: The methods can be looked upon as different types of tools. Feel free to use different methods in the same risk assessment. For example, a general review can be performed before using a more detailed method later in the process. In CIM there are 3 different methods to choose between (rough analysis, simplified analysis and full analysis). Outside this system, there are many other methods that can be used.
