About incident management
Why should you fill out an incident report?
An incident report lists the people involved and the consequences for the organisation.
The Incident Management module can assist you through the process, from completing the form to identifying the causes.
The interconnected nature of these modules enables traceability and analysis of event recurrence and, therefore, the ability to optimise your occupational risk management.
What is a fault tree?
A fault tree is a graphical tree structure that helps to identify the facts and causes of an event. The Incident Management module guides you through the tree-mapping process and supports you in risk prevention at work. Ishikawa is the alternative method offered in the module, to identify the causes of occupational hazards.
How do you make an EHS action plan?
Start by establishing a list of objectives and EHS compliance requirements within the module. Then, assign a manager to each action, in order to have an overview of the action plan and manage the process.
What is a workplace accident?
Whether it occurs as a result of work or during work, regardless of the cause, it is considered a workplace accident if it results in physical or psychological injury to a team member.
What is a near miss?
Whether it occurs as a result of or during work, regardless of the cause, it is considered a “near miss” workplace accident when it does not cause any physical injury to a team member, but potentially causes little to no property damage.
These types of incidents do not cause work interruptions and are rarely reported. They are considered to be part of the day-to-day company activity or attributed to the negligence of the concerned employees.
– A technician dismantles a steel ceiling plate in the cafeteria. The plate falls just after I walk through.
– I slip on the stairs, but I have the reflex to catch myself on the handrail.
– In the pumping substation, my foot bumps into a sheet of steel sticking out. I almost fall over.
– On the heat exchanger’s steam shut off valve, my key slides against the pipe, I almost hit my hand hard.
– Leaving the meeting room, I tripped over my colleague’s computer power cable, I barely caught myself.
What is the difference between an incident and an accident?
Unlike an accident, an incident does not cause any physical injury, only property damage. These types of events should be reported in the Incident Management module, according to their qualification, severity and impact on employees and/or equipment.
What are the main compliance assessment methods?
You can carry out your own internal compliance audits, using the data that the platform collects. Customise audit grids, add stakeholders, export personalised data and easily implement an action plan.
How can you effectively monitor preventive actions?
The platform includes a monitoring table, which summarises the action plan and the EHS management plan, enabling you to follow the progress of your objectives and improve your EHS risk management.
How do you set up an EHS audit?
Red-on-line’s team of certified auditors will create audit grids according to your needs, carry out the audits and submit improvement plans.
What is the role of a safety audit?
With the goal of certification in mind, these specific audits (or compliance inspections) prepare your organisation for regular audits of both the company and the sites. Practical tools allow you to organise the action plans necessary for your regulatory compliance (i.e. EHS reports and EHS audits by the Red-on-line teams).
About Occupational Risk Assessments
What is the Occupational Risk Assessment Document?
The Occupational Risk Assessment Document compiles the results of the evaluation of your organisation.
This mandatory document consolidates all the risks (technical, human, organisational) for your organisation, which allows for the analysis and implementation of your preventive action plan.
How do you manage occupational risks?
This module is designed to enable more effective risk management via monitoring and a defined action plan.
What are the main occupational risks?
Workplace risks can be natural or technological. A risk may be deemed major or not, depending on its impact on teams and equipment. The Occupational Risk Assessment module guides you through risk monitoring, analysis and management, and provides you with both customised support and the tools developed by our multidisciplinary team of EHS experts at Red-on-line.
How do you set up an occupational risk prevention project?
Simplify the implementation of your EHS compliance projects with the support of our multidisciplinary team of EHS risk management experts. Manage the evolution of your project with ease using our SaaS platform, which is designed to adapt to your existing system.
About sustainability reporting
Why should you do a sustainability report?
Sustainability reports highlight the social and environmental impact of your organisation’s activity and became mandatory in 2022. To facilitate the process, this module helps you to compile and edit your report for sharing. All ESG data is processed in this module.
What should a sustainability report include?
All of your organisation’s social and environmental initiatives must be included, along with their impact. To support you during this ongoing process, this module offers customisable questionnaires as well as assistance in monitoring your data and predefined indicators.
