Example:

When company X was processing the results of its risk assessment, the Managing Director decided to extend the use of risk management structure in accordance with the operations model. Co-operating with occupational health representatives and different employee group representatives a plan to resolve the problems of work related stress and to minimise the factors causing stress was compiled. An operational plan was written for the procedures, their timetable, available resources and targets for each procedure. The operations plan also named the person responsible for each procedure. The plan was based on the needs that had been revealed as earlier stages of the assessment had been performed. When the plan was ready it was processed in a meeting at the workplace and announced to the company through the Intranet. After this the operation plan’s procedures started to be carried out. Regular feedback was collected for the employees about the effect of the procedures and they were encouraged to take part in open discussions and interaction at work. The procedures’ results were assessed later in connection with the company’s appraisal day. The assessment ascertained that there had been concrete benefits as a result of the procedures: workload was now more reasonable, the initiation programme had made new employees’ work easier, and the whole organisation’s atmosphere had been improved. In connection with the assessment it was noted that it would have been good to pay closer attention to the timetable and increase the amount of information inside the work community. At the end of the appraisal day the company’s Managing Director was very satisfied with the work undertaken: the results were promising, key figures had improved and factors causing work-related stress had clearly reduced.
