Dear SHS Crew Members, Operations Team and Employees,
Please familiarise yourself with the online Report Safety Issue form.
All Crew Members and employees, regardless of experience or rank, or invited to use the Report Safety Issue form to report any potential issues that may impact the safety of any personnel, no matter how insignificant they may appear.
The RSI is part of our ongoing process to make our forms easily accessible to all SHS Crew Members online.
The RSI has been specifically created for ease of use and to be available at all times and locations.
The RSI replaces the old paper version and requires no downloading, printing or scanning, is optimised for mobile use and is environmentally friendly.
It is important that SHS Crew Members and employees use this Report Safety Issue form to report ALL Potential Safety Issues in the workplace, no matter how big or small.
The Report Safety Issue form is intended for use when out of the ordinary Safety Issues are identified in the workplace that requires an action to ensure the safety of SHS Crew Members and any personnel onsite, in the office or any workplace. By completing the Report Safety Issue form, we are documenting and storing the action taken to minimise the potential risk to Crew Members and employees.
How to use the Report Safety Issue form
For each Potential Safety Issue on a Job Site, consult the below table to assess the possible likelihood of harm occurring and the consequences of harm occurring. The combination of these two factors will result in a risk rating of extreme, high, medium or low. Example: When a potential hazard has a likelihood of “Possible” and a consequence of “Severe”, then according to the below table, the matrix will return a risk rating of “HIGH”.
Once you have identified the potential Safety Issue and implemented control measures, again assess the likelihood of harm occurring and the consequences of harm occurring in order to produce a new risk rating to determine whether it is now safe for crew to work in the area. Control Measures are Elimination, Substitute, Isolation, Engineering, Administration and PPE:
The Elimination of the Safety Issue is the most effective way to make the work environment and task safer.
Substitute the Safety Hazard with another of lower risk.
Isolating the Safety Issue is achieved by restricting access to the area/location of the hazard.
Minimise the risk by engineering means.
Minimise the risk by administrative means.
Provide Personal Protective Equipment.
The Report Safety Issue form can filled in by ANY member of the SHS Crew, any Operations Team Member or Employee.
