A critical sequence of operations is assessed by as many employees as possible who know the work procedures and carry them out occasionally. Assessment scales to assess the probability of occurrence and magnitude of damage associated with the critical operations are predetermined. The employees assess the process according to their professional and life experience. By multiplying the values of probability of occurrence and magnitude of damage a personal risk value is calculated, which afterwards can be compared with others.
Risk assessment determines the preventive behaviour. Thus it is the goal to raise underestimaded risks to a realistic magnitude through early recognition of the risk, realistic assessment and adequate behaviour.
The "perceived risk audit" is a simplified risk analysis that takes professional and life experience of the employees into account. Besides the legal obligation to carry out risk assessments, the underlying factors as probability of occurrence (often) and magnitude of damage (severe) are decisive factors in regard to the acceptance of preventive measures. Using the method "perceived risk audit" it is possible to present the private risk assessment at a realistic level through comparation and ratios in the groups. The method is used to assess near misses, entries in the first-aid book and actual events.
