3.2.1. Informal Risk Assessment

Generally sites have a procedure and a process for informal risk assessment e.g. SLAM, STOP, Take 5. Every person on the site should be skilled in identifying and addressing hazards involving unacceptable risks in their jobs.

These processes should introduce to all personnel the following:

  • Pause before you start a task

  • Look for hazards

  • Consider the risks

  • Act to reduce unacceptable risk (or do not proceed with the task)

  • Report any unacceptable risk that needs further action.

The information from these processes should be recorded to ensure required action is taken and feedback provided to the initiator.
