Composite Risk Acceptance

Regulatory safety compliance requires that all risk and hazards regarding people, equipment, or the environment are identified, severity and probability are determined, and the proper risk mitigation measures are implemented.

Unfortunately, the responsibility of knowing the hazards and enforcing established safety precautions falls mostly on the safety professional.  In allowing this occur,  key personnel (supervisors, front-line managers) who should manage safety in their work areas may not consider this their responsibility.

HOW HFS CAN HELP

HFS assists in evaluating and validating identified risks, and determining the level within the organization who should be responsible for accepting and managing the risk – Senior Management, Manager, Supervisor, Worker.

This approach promotes a culture of safety throughout the organization and creates a heighted sense of safety ownership and awareness in the workplace.
