From Uncertainty to Confidence – Navigating Risk Assessment with Ease

Risk assessment is the process of identifying, evaluating, and controlling risks. It is an essential part of any safety program, as it helps to identify potential hazards and take steps to mitigate them.

Risk assessment can be a daunting task, especially for large organizations with complex operations. This is where iProtectU EHS software can help. 

iProtectU EHS software is a cloud-based risk assessment platform that makes it simple to identify, assess, and control risks. The software includes a library of pre-defined hazards, as well as the ability to create custom hazards. It also provides a step-by-step risk assessment process, making it easy to follow – even for those with no prior experience. 

In addition to risk assessment, iProtectU EHS software includes several other features which can help organisations improve their safety program, such as: 

  • Incident reporting and tracking 
  • Safety training management 
  • Compliance management 
  • Document management 


By using iProtectU EHS software, organisations can navigate risk assessment with ease and improve their safety program overall. 

Steps involved in Risk Assessment: 

  • Identify the hazards. The first step is to identify all the hazards which could potentially harm employees, customers, or the environment. This can be done by conducting a hazard identification survey. 
  • Assess the risks. Once the hazards have been identified, they need to be assessed to determine the level of risk they pose. This can be done by using a risk assessment matrix. 
  • Control the risks. Once the risks have been assessed, steps need to be taken to control, manage or mitigate them. This may involve implementing engineering controls, administrative controls, or PPE. 
  • Monitor and review. The final step is to monitor and review the risk assessment regularly to ensure that it is still effective.  


iProtectU EHS software can help with each of the following steps: 

  • The hazard identification survey can be created and distributed using the software. 
  • The risk assessment matrix is built into the software and can be customised to meet the specific needs of the organisation. 
  • The software provides several tools for controlling risks. 
  • The software also includes a risk assessment dashboard – this allows users to monitor and review risk assessments on a regular basis. 


Additional tips for navigating risk assessment with ease: 

  • Get buy-in from management. Risk assessment is most effective when it is supported by management. Ensure that managers are aware of the importance of risk assessment and are committed to supporting the process. 
  • Involve employees. Employees are often the best source of information about hazards in the workplace. Make sure to involve them in the risk assessment process. 
  • Use a systematic approach. There are several different methods for conducting risk assessment. Choose a method that is appropriate for the organisation and that will be effective in identifying and controlling risks. 
  • Document the process. It is important to document the risk assessment process so that it can be easily reviewed and updated. 
  • Keep it up to date. Risks are constantly changing. Make sure to keep the risk assessment up to date to ensure that it is still accurate and effective. Don’t just file it away somewhere. 


By using iProtectU EHS software and following the above tips, organisations can navigate risk assessment with ease and improve their safety program overall.
