A good risk management practise in the company is a must in order to operate, to keep out of trouble if something unforseen happen (statistically we know it sooner or later will be incidents). To stay out of trouble all associated risks with any operation is to be identified, risk assessed, systemised and communicated on a contrinuously basis.
We assist the management to assure this is done.
Risk Assessment and Safe Job Analysis (SJA)
A risk assessment is designed to ensure that the method associated with performing marine operations has been assessed and that the risks associated with that method are as low as reasonably possible (ALARP) to ensure that no unnecessary risk is allowed, to the person(s) performing the task(s). The risk assessment is also an opportunity to identify high level potential hazards associated with the workscope and that all reasonably practicable risk reduction measures are taken, before the workscope is sent to site and the operation can begin, to reduce the risks to people and the environment.
A risk assessment is carried out during the planning stages of work. In due time ahead of the operations so everybody is able to familiarize themselves with the risks identified, and implement proper control measures as risk reduction activities.
While a safe job analysis is an operational stage risk assessment (sometimes referred to as task-based risk assessment). It is a systematic and stepwise review of all risk factors prior to a given work activity, operation or task, so that steps can be taken to reduce or mitigate the identified risk factors during preparation for and execution of the work activity or operation. The outcome of risk assessment, mainly risk mitigating controls is evaluated in the SJA/TRA and may be listed as controls required as condition of a work permit.
Both, the risk assessment and the Safe Job Analysis/Task Risk Assessment refer to the same process, however are applied at different stages of the operation.
