Active Monitoring

The remedial action needed and the date by which it should be carried out must be documented and communicated to the person responsible for implementation. The results of monitoring and the actions taken should be reported to the relevant managers and/or Departmental Safety Committee who can determine if any changes are required e.g. new control measures to be introduced, refresher training for staff or review of departmental arrangements for managing safety.

It is recommended that the riskNET system is used to record inspections as it will facilitate implementation of the monitoring programme and enable trends to be analysed.

Reactive Monitoring

The result of accident investigations must be recorded and include:

  • the remedial action taken;
  • the immediate and underlying cause;
  • recommendations for improvement;
  • timescale for completion.

The results of accident and incident investigations must be entered on riskNET. See: What is riskNET?

Departmental arrangements should ensure that a procedure is established to track the progress of actions arising out of both active and reactive monitoring activities.
