Risk Assessment Process

Integrated Safety Management

Integrated Safety Management is a framework developed by the U.S. Department of Energy for achieving its mission while maintaining the highest standard of safe operations. As adapted by UCLA, Integrated Safety Management is an iterative process consisting of five steps which are outlined in Figure 1 below. UCLA’s Risk Assessment Process will assist PI’s and their research groups in formalizing three of the five steps: assessing the risks, developing and implementing controls, and providing feedback.
