Risk Assessment link with incident/accident Log entry.


Nee your input for below Challenge.

We are looking for development, which help us to link Risk Assessment with incident/accident Log entry in CBIH82.

Scenario - We would like to add Risk Assessment option in the incident / accident log entry screen, like we standard have function for safety measure

    Hi Sunil,

    Are you attempting to u201Clinku201D the standard IHS Risk Assessment functionality to the Incident/Accident log?

    In my opinion there is a fundamental problem with this solution approach. The standard IHS Risk assessment is inherently linked to a Work Area. The intention is to identify, evaluate and control risks and hazards that are encountered within a specific work area. This functionality supports measurement management and exposure management but does not fit well with the acute nature of the incident based risk assessment, although, a risk that is identified and addressed initially as the result of an incident may ultimately be added to the Risk Register of the Work Area where the incident occurred.

    The best approach I have found is to enhance the incident record with a Risk Assessment tab that allows the user to identify the individual incident risks based on different risk impacts like People, Environment, Assets, Reputation, Quality and so forth based on client requirements. Any incident could have one or more risk impacts that contribute to the overall risk rating of the incident. Each u201Crisk impactu201D is evaluated on the clients standard risk matrix dimensions like Severity, Likely hood and so on. In this way each risk impact has a unique risk rating. You can then either identify one of the impacts as the main incident risk rating or have a routine that, based on logic and risk matrix, evaluates the unique risk impact ratings and determines an overall risk rating for the incident.

    Once the unique risk impacts have been evaluated, there should be the ability to reevaluate each impact based on the controls or safety measures that have been implemented. These u201Cresidual risksu201D could be linked directly to the safety measure that addresses the risk so that the details of the control are apparent.

    I would also consider some type of status management that would indicate when the risk assessment was complete. This could be used to enforce a risk assessment for incidents that meet predefined conditions like u201Cincident cannot be closed if it meets criteria 1, 2 and 3 and the risk assessment status is initialu201D. The risk assessment status could also be used support reporting requirements for outstanding risk assessments and so on.

    To implement this approach, I would recommend utilizing one of the menu exits or, if possible, a custom Web Dynpro application linked via BAPI.

    Hope this helps or at least spurs some thought.

    Hi Sunil

    This info is avilable in SAP EHS IHS config guide for Mining Industry.

    SAP has developed this functionality for Mining Industry in Australia, only thing is taht this is not in built in standrad SAP EHS IHS, discuss with your basis people, wheather they might be knowing access to this program.

    This is avilable on site.

    document name is: X18_BB_ConfigGuide_EN_AU.doc you can google out the same.

    If you have any issues call me. +91-9764007574

    3.5 Linking Incident/Accident Log to Risk Assessment(Manual Step)

    The following manual steps include a couple of coding objects that are required in order to allow users to establish a link between risk assessment and incident / accident log. This is typically required in many countries to get certification on the established process of industrial hygiene and safety within Environment, Health and Safety solutions.

    Please ignore all below step if you do not require this function. Note however that the corresponding step in BPP X81 Industrial Hygiene and Safety will not work (while all other steps work as described).

    Thanks and Regards.

    Mandar Sathe.
