Hazard and Risk Identification

Eliminating hazards is a job best shared because people notice different things. Encouraging them to make use of their power of observation promotes a culture of safety in the office.

Prevent-IT! Office Safety HARI sets out expectations at induction, for staff moving between departments and as an annual Health & Safety refresher course.

HARI supports compliance with Section 5 of the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 for the office environment. It addresses the requirements of:
  • COSSH Regs. 2002
  • Health and Safety at Work Act 1974
  • Manual Handling Operations Regs. 1992
  • Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005
  • Electricity at Work Regs. 1989
  • Health and Safety (First Aid) Regs. 1981
  • Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regs. 1992
  • Fire Safety (Scotland) Regulations 2005
Following a warm-up awareness-raising test, staff are trained to identify hazards and make necessary changes responsibly in order to reduce the causes of sickness and the chances of accidents happening. HARI covers:
  • electricity supply
  • heaters and other fire hazards
  • obstacles to free movement
  • personal medical issues
  • reaching, lifting and moving
  • slips and trips
  • unshielded lighting
  • ventilation
The module finishes with a self assessment covering unresolved problems in the area around the workstation and wherever is familiar to individual staff members.

HARI is available as a hosted solution for small to medium employers and for medium to large employers. Both generate a date and time-stamped results printout. The larger employers' version also produces an optional course certificate and features a powerful cross-module Results Management System.
