5.2.1. Moving from Stage 1 to Stage 2

If it is determined that the risk management system is at Stage 1; then planning to move towards the next level should involve consideration of the following areas of improvement:

  • Beginning to think about training and competency

  • Starting to do risk assessments

  • Starting to consider legal compliance

  • Introducing basic accident investigation

  • Introducing basic inspection, monitoring and auditing.

An approach looking at training and competency should be developed and basic training initiated.

Risk management activities such as risk assessment, accident investigation and checking through inspection, monitoring and auditing should be started. (This might be achieved by acquiring an external health and safety management program provided by a services supplier and possibly audited by that supplier on a regular basis. Many sites in the mining industry have evolved through external OH&S management systems as a necessary step towards development of their own site specific system).

Legal compliance is a minimum standard of risk management that must be achieved to reach Stage 2.

The three key risk management activities within the system are risk assessment, investigation and checking through inspections, monitoring and auditing.

These early days of inspection, monitoring and auditing would involve the development of inspection activities to meet compliance requirements and possibly auditing to the newly introduced occupational health and safety management program.

Moving from Stage 1 to Stage 2 involves meeting the following milestones:

  • Beginning to think about training and competency through to the development of some related activities

  • Starting to do risk assessment for compliance, after an accident or for a major change using basic techniques such as JSA and PHA

  • Starting to consider legal compliance and beginning to audit the site for compliance

  • Introducing basic accident investigation through the development of forms and the supervisor’s responsibility

  • Introducing basic inspection, monitoring and auditing at least to compliance requirements and possibly auditing to the new occupational health and safety management program.
