SHE Code 6 – “Risk
Management”
Why do Risk Assessments (RAs) ?
•
RAs are one means by which those
undertaking a new, or existing, activities are
prompted to consider SHE hazards and how
they will be managed to minimise the risk of
injury to themselves or others, or indeed to the
environment.
•
RAs are a simple and pragmatic means of
involving all staff in safety management
•
There are legal duties on employers, the
STFC, and employees, YOU, under health &
safety legislation to undertake RA.
Why the Update?
•
Recent internal and external audits have found
that although the organisation has made
significant progress in managing Risk in recent
years, there were issues with:
–
The “Quality” of Risk Assessments;
–
Communication of Risk Assessments to those who
do the work; and
–
The need for a process to undertake Risk
Assessments for short tasks - while “On the Job”.
Key New Features
•
•
Explicit definitions of what STFC means by “Significant
Hazards” and “Significant Risks”

“On the Job”
Risk Assessment
“On The Job” (OTJ) Risk Assessment - An
on the spot risk assessment, which many are
used to doing mentally, when changes or
additions to planned work occur, or if carrying
out a quick or last minute task. The quality of
mental risk assessments can be improved by
using a very simple pro-forma designed to
prompt the consideration of a wide range of
hazards, called an OTJ RA.
SHE Group have a supply of pre-printed OTJ Risk Assessment pads

Ensure any activity you undertake where there are
significant SHE hazards takes place under a
documented RA – existing or new activities ( including
activities undertaken at non STFC sites )
Documented RAs should be stored in SHE Enterprise.
Review Documented RAs when the activity changes or
every 2 years in SHE Enterprise.
