A problem I often encountered when holding company safety meetings was how to filter out meeting rubbish and get down to the root problems. They often result in a slanging match between say production & maintenance etc. Each risk assessment should be scored as per HSE guidance for hazard & risk, then encourage each departmental safety rep to present his/her top two significant risk assessment scores from their work area to the meeting, and use this as the basis for the agenda. Do this for each work area/dept. Introduce a near miss and a new hazard reporting document system to enable information to be fed into the risk assessments also. Any other points raised in the meeting A.O.B should be addressed and if appropriate entered in the relevant risk assessment documentation and scored. When the actions have been completed the next highest scoring risk comes on to the agenda. This method has three major points
1. It ranks the significant risks and brings them to the forefront
2. It communicates them to the workforce via the meeting minutes
3. It reduces meeting friction and allows it to progress quicker
