Safety observations and failure notices

Safety observations

Safety observations can be used to prevent hazards and accidents and to promote well-being at the workplace. Only identified hazards can be managed so the observations have an important role in safety promotion. In addition to the safety problems, the observation can be a positive point or an improvement idea also. Safety observation can concern, in addition to accidents, exposures and near misses, for example, the safety of facilities and equipment, student safety, environment or safety instructions. No safety observation is too trivial to be reported.

A safety observation can be reported using the a observation form in Rego risk management tool (, Haka login). Safety observations are processed by safety specialists and other designated experts according to the type of observation (e.g. experts in facility management, laboratory safety and occupational safety). The aim is to process the safety observations within a week of the arrival of the notification.

Occupational accidents and serious incidents must be reported without delay to the supervisor, in addition to which a safety observation report is made to Rego. Information on occupational accidents and incidents is also passed on to the assigned occupational safety representatives. Observations related to buildings or outdoor areas requiring repairing are primarily reported as a defect. In addition to the defect report, safety-related incidents are also requested to be reported as a safety observation via Rego (e.g. by copying the information in the defect report to the safety observation form).
