  • OSHA Assessment

Reactive/Proactive Assessment (A-D)

  • Use REACTIVE to classify the risk as it occurred in an event (ex: near miss, close call, quality escape, accident, incident, injury)

    Use PROACTIVE to classify the potential for risk to manifest itself in the system. This is forward looking assessment using safety assurance data to support the likelihood

  • Type of Assessment

  • What was the effectiveness of the remaining controls between this event and the most credible outcome?

  • A: Not Effective: Remaining controls were ineffective or no controls remained. The only thing preventing an accident were luck or exceptional skills, which is not trained or required
    B: Minimal: Some controls were left but their total effectiveness was minimal
    C: Limited: An abnormal situation, more demanding to manage, but with still a considerable remaining safety margin
    D: Effective: Consisting of several good controls

  • Reactive Assessment (Control Effectiveness)

  • A: Likely to Occur: (Will occur in most circumstances, not surprised if it happens) or occurs > 1 in 100
    B: Possible to Occur: (Might occur in some circumstances) or occurs > 1 in 1,000
    C: Unlikely to Occur: (Could occur in some circumstances, surprised if it happens) or occurs in > 1 in 10,000
    D: Rare to Occur: (May occur but only in exceptional circumstances, may happen but it would only be highly unexpected) or occurs > 1 in 1,000,000
