HANDS HQ, the industry-leading risk assessment software, has announced the launch of Risk Register, a product which provides an easy way for health and safety teams to manage, review and update a company's risk assessments, all in one place. Risk Register creates a single source of truth for a company’s risk assessment and method statement content, so health and safety teams know staff are always using the latest version.
HANDS HQ focuses on helping health & safety managers make work safer. They are more valuable to an organisation implementing safe workplace practices than they are creating reams of paperwork. However the majority of the time they are buried in documentation; struggling to get their team to produce high-quality risk assessments using the most up-to-date version; auditing and rejecting documents.
And the new ISO 45001 certification brings with it the added challenge of safety being incorporated into the entire organisation, rather than making it a responsibility of safety management. There is now more onus than ever before on a company to demonstrate employee involvement in creating and tailoring each risk assessment, a significant difference between OHSAS 18001 and 45001
Thanks to Risk Register, health & safety managers can quickly create and collate a library of risk assessments in one place and immediately push any changes instantly to their staff, while automatically maintaining a full audit history.
They can have peace of mind that staff will always be using the latest version of a risk assessment, easing concerns over compliance, and allowing the effective management of health & safety.
“This is a big day for our customers as it delivers safer and more effective work on a broad scale. After an accident or near miss, a risk assessment can be updated and pushed out to all staff within minutes. This will critically assist in the future prevention of accidents, will help complete the Plan, Do, Check and Act approach and removes the need to audit documentation on staff computers” said Alex Green, CEO of HANDS HQ.
Over the last five years, HANDS HQ has made over 70,000 projects safer thanks to its intuitive software which can undertake risk assessments and method statements faster and more accurately than the industry norm of copy pasting. Risk Register expands the platform’s capabilities to help teams build a more effective and collaborative environment online.
“Risk Register is light years ahead of where we currently are - it takes us two weeks every quarter to audit our teams and ensure they’re using the most up to date risk assessments. To be able to edit risk assessments in a centralised location, and for it to be automatically rolled out to end users, delivers a simple high level of control to our health & safety advisors. This is where we want to be as a business” said the Regional Director of Health & Safety at one of the UK’s largest Facilities Management companies.
HANDS HQ will be providing demonstrations of Risk Register at the Health & Safety North Expo in Manchester 9-10 October 2018. Visit HANDS HQ on Stand J40 to find out more.
