One of the most important points for institutions to protect themselves in rapidly changing market conditions is resource management. The QDMS Integrated Management System solution offers you the necessary solution in this regard. In the most general sense of risk management, by analyzing the impact of undesirable situations and events that may arise in a process, activity or region; preventive actions are planned and kept under constant control before these risks occur, with a proactive approach. Risk management consists of risk identification, analysis, planning of risk-reducing actions and continuous control processes. Management systems see the risk management as an indispensable element.
Occupational Health and Safety is one of the most important methods used in risk analysis. In this method, 3 multipliers are used while calculating the risk. These multipliers are: Probability, Frequency and Impact/Loss. According to the results, if the risk value is less than 20, the risk that can be tolerated; if more than 400 occurred, it is called as the risk that needs to be planned urgent action by interrupting the work.
What is PPE? Personal protective equipment is the equipment that protects the personnel in the work area against any undesired event/work accident and is embezzled by the relevant person.

Depending on the hazard classes of the workplaces, employees are subjected to routine health examinations at certain intervals. According to the relevant regulation, these periods are as follows: At least once every 5 years in workplaces in the less dangerous class, at the latest every 3 years in the workplaces in the dangerous class, at the latest once a year in the workplaces in the very dangerous class. Periodic health examinations are recorded in accordance with the Annex 2 format determined by the Ministry of Health. The procedure in question can be followed with the Periodic Health Inspection module of Bimser’s Integrated Management System solution.
It may be necessary for third parties to enter the work area for various purposes. These people are company personnel called subcontractors/contractors who do business with the company and provide some services to them. However, a number of procedural permits must be obtained in order for the contractor company personnel to enter the site of the company they serve and to work in the field. Work Permit Management is the process in which the stages such as training, declaration, risk assessment, which must be controlled in order for the subcontractor personnel to work in the field, are managed.
According to the Occupational Health and Safety Law No. 6331, employers are obliged to carry out controls, measurements, examinations and researches in order to determine the risks to which the employees are exposed and the working environment in terms of OHS. At the same time, businesses constantly monitor certain parameters to determine the impact of production processes on nature and society. As an example of these measurements; Ambient Noise Measurement, Personal Noise Measurement, Body Vibration Measurement, Ambient Dust Measurement, Greenhouse Gas Emission Measurement, etc.
It is possible that undesirable situations may arise in a business. During risk assessments, the possibility of these situations to occur is emphasized and necessary actions are planned. However, if these situations occur despite everything, the risk is now realized and an EVENT has taken place. Incidents can be generally divided into 2 groups as Work Accidents and Near Loss. Occupational accidents are events that affect work, resulting in death, injury or loss of working hours. Near near; are events that do not cause harm, although they have the potential to harm the employee, equipment or work environment. In any case, it is indispensable to deal with the incidents, evaluate them, perform root cause analyzes and plan the necessary actions.
