Risk inventory & evaluation (RI&E)


The Occupational Health & Safety Act requires you to identify possible (Occupational Health and Safety-related) risks within your company and to take the right measures to reduce these risks as much as possible. The Risk Inventory and Evaluation, or RI&E in short, has been developed for that identification of the risks present. Because only when you know what risks there are, can you take the right measures. This RI&E is mandatory for all companies with employees. The RI&E forms the basis of a Plan of Action. It states who takes what measure, when.  By implementing the Plan of Action, companies can make the work safer and healthier.

Why aN RI&E?

The aim of an RI&E is to support management in the conduct of a structural occupational health and safety policy, taking into account the risks present. This way you work on optimal working conditions for your employees. From a financial point of view, it is also beneficial to carry out an RI&E. Because the costs of industrial accidents and absenteeism outweigh the costs involved in making the working environment safe.

Benefits of an RI&E:

  • It gives you an idea of all relevant dangers and risks within your company
  • You meet all legal obligations
  • With the plan of action, you can reduce the costs of absenteeism
  • By carrying out the inventory, employees feel more involved in the organisation, and they will deliver better work performance

An RI&E can help you with the following aspects, among other things:

  • Setting up a good occupational health and safety policy
  • Reducing incidents and accidents
  • A policy for psychosocial workload (bullying, sexual harassment and aggression)
