SMS-Pro’s Hazard Risk Register is not simply a hazard register, or a list of your organization’s hazards such as many organizations have in an excel document. It is integrated with the Proactive Hazard Analysis module, and is a robust, multi-functional tool that:
• Outlines risks;
• Shows your top risks;
• Your control measures for each risk;
• Initial and residual risk assessments for each risk;
• Gives you the ability to export, sort, and filter data; and
• Configure your hazards based on their importance.
The first things we see displayed are two pie charts that display the top hazards in the past 3 months and 6 months, based on how many reported issues were associated with each hazard. You can also view charts for your top hazards in the past year and 3 years at the bottom of the page.
Below is a list of all of the Hazards that you have created in the Proactive Hazard Analysis module, including:
• The category and sub category that the hazard belongs to;
• A location associated with the hazard;
• The next review date of each hazard; and
• How many reported safety issues were associated with each risk within multiple time frames
You can easily order your risks from greatest to least concern with the arrows to the right. And finally, you can easily export all of this information to excel, a pdf, csv, or word document.
The next tab features a more in depth look at the management behind each risk. This tab gives management a comprehensive overview of their program’s risks, what has been done, and what may be needed for each risk. Here, we can see
• A list of each of our risks;
• Each risk’s risk description;
• Control measures for each risk;
• The priority that has been set for the risks;
• As well as the initial and residual risk assessment.
Based on this information, management should quickly be able to see which risks need to be prioritized. Like the previous tab, this information can be exported to multiple file types.
The Hazard Risk Register’s last tab, To Hazards, displays a list of how many times each hazard has been associated with reported safety issue in the past 12 months, as well as the control measures in place for each risk, allowing management to see if they are adequately controlling the risks that are being reported.
As you can see, the Hazard Risk Register is no ordinary register – it’s a one stop shop to get a total overview of your risks that are most relevant to your organizations safety concerns. All of the risks in the hazard risk register come from the Proactive Hazard Analysis Tool Module, or PHAT module.
Like SMS-Pro’s Executive Dashboard, the PHAT module is a fairly unique tool in the aviation software industry. The PHAT module is a totally comprehensive for all your risks, and is fully configurable. It displays:
• Your Operational Risk Profile for each division;
• All of your hazard categories with a description and completion charts for each category;
• Sub categories with associated locations, review dates, and management accepted dates for each one;
• And sub categories hazards, with documentable scenarios and control measures.
The hazard category, sub category, and hazards tree is fully configurable. Managers can add new hazard categories, new sub categories, and new hazards very easily by simply selecting where they would like to add their new item and giving it a name and description.
One great feature when adding new items is that you can make them KPIs.
With new or existing hazard categories, you are able to describe each hazard based on either the SHELL model or 5M model, which can be chosen under the Division Description.
As said, for each subcategory you are able to give it a location, a next review date, and a management accepted date. Each sub category will also list when the subcategory was last updated and who it was updated by.
Finally, you have several powerful options with each hazard. You can:
• Add multiple scenarios for each hazard;
• Set a risk priority;
• View existing controls and each control’s implementation status,
• Add any available control measures, such as a policy or procedure;
• Create new control measures with their level of implementation;
• Provide rational for listing and assessing the hazard;
• Add any review comments;
• And attach any relevant documents.
As you can see, such levels of forethought and documentation for each hazard are magnificent ways to meet your safety performance goals and deliver superior audit results.
Moreover, you can view all of your hazards and associated documentation by viewing a report. You can generate the report into a downloadable PDF document, or generate it in your browser.
