Risk Assessment Tools

Risk Assessment Tools

Having done Machine Safety Inspections, Accident Investigations, and Risk Assessments for years, we’ve learned a few things.  Now with modern tools such as iPads, tablets, and smartphones, we’ve taken the tedious steps out of the process, and created easy to use software Apps.

If you are not sure if you need our Risk Assessments (RA), read here [Case Study – Why Perform a Risk Assessment?].  Once you decide you need a risk assessment, you will want to choose tools that allow you and your team to complete the risk assessments quickly and easily.  We’ve taken more than 70 years’ of safety consulting experience and placed it into our software tools. Our software apps make the RA process efficient, fast, and even fun.

At Machine Safety Specialists, we can help you get started with the Risk Assessment process.  We offer Risk Assessment Training, Risk Assessment Workshops, and the tools needed to make the process as efficient and painless as possible.  Then, after training, guidance, and practice with our experts, you can do this on your own.  We can help you and your team be successful.

ANSI/RIA Compliant Risk Assessment Spreadsheet – Enhanced Three State

This enhanced version of our ANSI/RIA Compliant Risk Assessment Spreadsheet clarifies risk assessment requirements for the “three states” of machine safeguarding: without safeguarding, existing safeguarding, and future safeguarding. Standard risk assessment tools only track two states, “before/after”, leaving ambiguity in the risk assessment process. Our new “three state” tool allows you to comply with ANSI/RIA standards, and easily track all “three states” in one spreadsheet!

As our Risk Assessment team identifies tasks and hazards, this spreadsheet enables you to document all reasonably foreseeable hazards, score the initial risk (without safeguarding), existing risk (existing safeguarding), and residual risks (after future safeguarding is validated), identifying specific risk reduction measures in each state. Users of this Risk Assessment spreadsheet typically include EHS professionals, operators, maintenance persons, managers or engineers.

This ANSI/RIA Compliant Risk Assessment Spreadsheet is based on the latest industry safety standards.  The key advantages are:

  • Well defined criteria for Severity, Exposure, and Avoidance, in compliance with ANSI/RIA standards
  • Calculates required Category, Performance Level (PL), and determines if Control Reliability is required.
  • Includes comprehensive list of ANSI compliant hazards.

When used properly, this tool provides an ANSI/RIA compliant report that is suitable for use as machine documentation within the U.S. and for import/export of machinery.
