Each year, we identify and assess risks across the Group and create risk maps for all our working processes and locations. We then develop detailed programmes to help us reduce these risks. We carry out an annual qualitative hazardous risk assessment, and inform employees of the results through a range of communication channels. In 2017, we implemented our new Critical Risks Management (CRM) system, identifying critical risks. To reduce the potential impact of critical risks at all our operations, our CRM includes a health and safety action plan for all critical risks, and for each risk we have identified five main directions of impact, and at least two preventative actions for each direction of impact.
We follow a Shift Risk Assessment (SRA) model to raise employee awareness of workplace dangers, manage risks promptly, and control the accuracy of our risk assessments. We implement SRA most rigorously in hazardous operational areas, for example automobile transport, mines, and plant and power supply.
