Create a safe and healthy working environment

Every organisation has its own safety risks. This means that prevention and emergency response plans should, in our view, be tailor-made. When we advise or help an organisation with its safety, we start according to the established formula for risk analysis: Risk = Chance x Effect. We identify all risks by reading up on the industry, researching the business activities, visiting the site(s) and interviewing employees. These risks are input for the action plan in which we describe measures and provisions to eliminate or reduce the risks. We translate the residual risks in combination with the normative factors (nature, size and complexity of a building, number of (self-reliant) persons present) and external risks (natural disasters) into incident scenarios. This forms the basis for your company emergency organisation (bno) or company emergency response organisation (bhv-org) and is described in a bno or bhv plan. The evacuation plan is part of this.But safety is more than an inventory and evaluation of risks. Our own guiding principle: Safety = Prevention x Focus. With prevention, we do our utmost to minimise risks. And with focus, we ensure that safety is a constant focus of the organisation, including through a well-functioning team of safety officers.

RI&E (update) needed?
Do you want to know if you need to make a Risk Inventory & Evaluation (RI&E) for your organisation? Is your current RI&E version still adequate? Check the following questions. The answers determine whether you need a (new) RI&E. FeniksGroup is happy to help you with this.

Do you have any staff?

As soon as an organisation – however small – employs staff, an RI&E is mandatory. By staff we mean: temporary workers, hired workers, trainees and so on. Does an organisation consist solely of volunteers? Then an RI&E is only compulsory if hazardous substances or biological agents are handled.

Do you have all the risks mapped out?

When identifying potential risks, we look at the safety, health and well-being of employees. You can take stock of risks by, for example, studying past industrial accidents and incidents and interviewing workers. And also by having inspections and observations carried out by a safety expert, supervisor or employees. The result is a list of all risks within the organisation in relation to working conditions.

Do you evaluate risks?

Based on the risk inventory, a safety expert in collaboration with the organisation determines for each risk from the list how relevant and large (or small) the hazard is. The degree of risk (R) is the probability of the hazard (K) multiplied by the effect of the hazard (E). Risk = Chance x Effect. Example: Those who do the same screen work for a long time may develop symptoms. But the probability of the hazard (K) is less than working with hazardous substances or working at high altitude, and the effect of the hazard (E) is also different.

Do you have an action plan for each risk?

What measures are needed to eliminate or reduce all risks? The answer to that question leads to a plan that explicitly identifies the following components for each risk or hazard:

  • risk overview with corresponding classification
  • the measures to control the risks
  • the person responsible for implementing the measures
  • the timeframe per measure to be implemented
  • possibly a residual risk indication inventory and evaluation

Has an external professional reviewed your RI&E?

Testing the RI&E is not always mandatory. It depends, among other things, on company size and the method used for the risk inventory. Certified testing is not required for organisations with fewer than 25 employees that use a registered sector RI&E tool or an RI&E tool recognised in the collective agreement. If the RI&E has to be reviewed, this is done by a certified occupational health and safety service or a certified core expert (safety expert, work/organisation expert or company doctor). The result is an approved RI&E that meets the legal requirements. Want to know for sure whether your RI&E needs to be reviewed? We will be happy to advise you.

Is the action plan being implemented and is the RI&E still up-to-date?

The action plan should be implemented and periodically evaluated. The result should be better working conditions and fewer incidents.The Working Conditions Act does not specify a validity period for an RI&E. The basic principle is that it should always be up to date. So whenever there are major adjustments or (organisational) changes in the organisation, it is necessary to check whether there are any new risks. Even if there are no major changes, it is important to regularly review the action plan and assess and monitor progress.If you demonstrably follow all these steps, your RI&E meets the most important requirements: up-to-date, reliable and complete.
