Hazard tracking: SMART tracks hazards by type, location, and ranking. This tracking is used to identify areas or processes that exhibit elevated safety risk. This information may be used to more effectively allocate safety resources for hazard mitigation and accident prevention.
Operating experience: Personnel safety operating experience from related industries is incorporated into the SMART database. This data provides depth to SMART’s treatment of site processes, identified hazards, and incident history.
Safety checklist: SMART is used to develop task and area specific safety checklists. Selection of a work task in a specific area generates a safety checklist that is populated with details concerning area hazards, operating experience, and optional lessons learned which are specific to the planned task. SMART identifies appropriate work procedures, safety features, and personnel protective equipment required to conduct the work task safely.
Facility hazard site navigation: Hazard identification and locations are important to understanding areas of elevated risk. Knowledge of potential hazards enhances personnel situational awareness. In addition SMART calls attention to HOT SPOTS where higher levels of risk have been identified due to particular hazards and their frequency of occurrence.
Lessons learned interface: Knowledge of all hazards for a given task is important. With additional detail from a site’s safety management resources, lessons learned from past occurrences are provided that are specific to the hazard, facility, or possibly industry-wide.
Hazard and incident database evolution: SMART can be customized to broaden its baseline hazard and incident database. Broadening the data set allows more detailed analysis via expanded logical relationships that provide value-added insights for safety program management. SMART’s customizability allows for adaptation to assess additional data relationships, thus providing an ever evolving programmatic tool.
Facility hazard risk matrix: Hazards are ranked according to their type and potential significance. When combined with hazard frequency, SMART creates a risk ranking profile for a room, area, building, or facility. Understanding these relative relationships forms the basis for management of hazard and accident controls.
Risk-cost ratio analysis: Risk management balances a set of known hazards with a cost estimate to control each one. A risk/cost ratio analysis provides insights to assist in the prioritization of implementing facility safety enhancements.
