What Is a Hazard Reporting Book?
A hazard reporting book is a structured book where staff can record hazards, so they can be minimised and managed in a safe manner. It has clear and consistent instructions on:
- How to identify hazards;
- Assess the risk;
- Manage the hazard;
- Proceed and monitor the hazard
It guides your team on what action to take and who to report to, as well as allowing your team members to be proactive in being able to report any risks or hazards in the workplace or on site. By having a structured and consistent way to report and record hazards, it allows for management to easily keep records and quality data on how hazards have been avoided or fixed in a timely manner.
Employees should never feel discouraged to report issues of safety. By providing an essential aid like this, staff are able to report any risks and ensure everyone's safety.
How and When To Use a Hazard Reporting Book?
All businesses have a responsibility to provide a safe working environment for their employees. This means ensuring that any potential hazards are identified and minimised.
Using the hazard reporting book is fuss free and can easily be incorporated into your hazard reporting procedures at your workplace. The books are clear and have step by step instructions on how to handle each risk as it arises, allowing staff to feel comfortable to raise any safety issues and be part of the solution.
If you decide to incorporate hazard reporting books into your workplace, they should book should be easily accessible and well-publicised, so that all staff are aware of it. They should be regularly reviewed by management and safety teams, so that any potential dangers can be quickly dealt with.
How Is It Similar or Different To Take 5 Books?
You might be familiar with our Take 5 books and checklists that help you to identify hazards before any work is undertaken on a job site. Using a similar step-by-step procedure, the HAZOB reporting book is for any hazard identified in a workplace at any time.
Not all areas have the need to complete a Take 5 checklist each day. But, using our hazard reporting book makes it easy to identify, access and manage potential risks in real time as needed. These books are a great way to bring consistency to office safety as well as areas already identified as high risk.
The new books have the same clear and concise structure and instructions as our Take 5 books for how to assess risks and how to proceed. They include the Hazard Risk Rating Table and the Hierarchy of Controls. Teams will be familiar with both of these to make sure risks are reported and rectified quickly.
They are simple to follow and simple to fill out to ensure staff aren't overwhelmed or put off by the reporting process.
