Safety Risk Model Risk Profile Tool

The Risk Profile Tool – powered by SMIS – provides rail companies with an up-to-date, informed calculation of the nature of the health and safety risk they face, allowing them to make targeted, efficient intervention that improves safety and reduces cost.

The tool combines:

  • Relevant hazardous events and precursors from the Safety Risk Model
  • National normalisers.
  • National average consequences per hazardous event.
  • Imports of data from the Safety Management Intelligence System (SMIS) via Jaspersoft.

The tool is an easy to use spreadsheet, which you can download below and open in Microsoft Excel. The current version of the tool is based on SRM v8.5.

Why use the Risk Profile Tool

  • Really easy to use
  • Provides instant calculation of risk based on your company’s SMIS data – or whatever data you choose to use, which could include considering hypothetical scenarios to aid planning
  • Helps companies comply with health and safety legislation (especially Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations and ROGS)
  • Generates intelligence that forms part of an evidence base for individual companies and industry groups to make decisions about where to invest time, resource and funds to improve safety and performance even further
  • Rail funders and the regulator also want to know that investment is leading to outputs and outcomes which reflect safety aims and an informed understanding of the risk as well as value for money
