Assistance with risk assessments often requires a site visit. A full report is then issued, typically within one week of the site visit. This report can be illustrated if digital photography is permitted.
Regular reviews are an important part of risk assessment. They are an opportunity to look at any changes that may have occurred, such as:
- Staff – number, age, experience, responsibilities.
- Equipment – new machines.
- Methods – revised processes.
- Building structure – new facilities.
Note all changes since the last review and check what additional information, instruction and training that you should provide.
A training needs assessment is a cost effective way to begin targeting the high risk areas. A “fresh pair of eyes” to look over your safety provisions can help to spot areas for improvement.
While dry ice is an extremely versatile product with many uses, it is difficult to manufacture economically, difficult to store effectively, and can be hazardous to handle. We have experience in the manufacturing, storage, transport, and handling of dry ice. If you currently use Dry Ice then talk to us about product efficiency and product safety as these two often go hand in hand.
