Free risk assessment software now used by over 100 SELECT Members

More than 100 SELECT Members are now using the free risk assessment software provided in partnership with the Building Safety Group (BSG).

An increasing number of firms are using the simple-to-use templates to complete online assessments to help their business remain compliant with HSE regulations.

More than 80 different types of assessments are available – including Electrical Tasks first and second fix and Test and Commissioning – with each template pre-configured with its own set of unique control measures relevant to the hazard being assessed.

Users simply apply a risk rating for each hazard appraised, using BSG’s 5×5 risk evaluation matrix. This automatically calculate scores based on risk severity and likelihood, and users can then apply a residual risk rating once the control measures have been considered.

Once the assessment has been completed, it can be saved as a PDF and emailed to the site location where the construction work is taking place.

Dave Forrester, Head of Technical at SELECT, said: “The BSG risk assessment software is a fantastic tool that is already making life easier for our Members across Scotland.

“We are delighted to have reached the 100-user mark and would recommend it to Members everywhere. It’s easy to use and flexible enough to be used across a wide range of different projects and scenarios.”

SELECT Members can register for free access to the software by visiting BSG’s website. Once there, submit your details to receive a personal username, password and user guide.
