Disclaimer: To quote Dr Rob Long: "Unfortunately, many of the tools available to people in the safety industry are mechanistic in nature and shape the thinking of the human into a dumb down trajectory. Whilst it’s good to have a checklist or a template, it’s even more important to be aware of the purpose and inherent bias. The paradox is, some checklists and templates disable to capability of a person to think. So, this is not some simplistic put down of these tools but rather a challenge for safety people to remain vigilant in their thinking. This site more than anything attracts people who want templates and don’t get me wrong templates can save time and effort but they are not neutral and were developed by some other person for a purpose, that template has a trajectory and a purpose".

One of the main complaints we get from employees and contractors during the interview phase of safety audits is that when they report something, like a hazard, it is either forgotten about, ignored or not actioned for a long time and they never receive recognition for reporting the issue or feedback about progress with resolution or control. Many companies have introduced a formal hazard reporting system to overcome this problem. The system incorporates a form similar to the one available below and a procedures whereby the form is recorded, commented on by those responsible and feedback given to the originator. You’ll see that ours has an important addition – adding the issue and controls to any site safety checklists that are regularly undertaken to ensure that the hazard has been controlled appropriately.Download Here:
