Abstract [en]

This study presents a risk analysis of General Electric (GE) Healtcare Umeå production groups; the study includes an analysis of routines, risk analysis, and finally, to establish a foundation for on-going work with values. Information and advice concerning implementation of routines was through questioning of production leaders, safety officers and staff from each workstation. An important issue was to look for differences and to assess the advantages or disadvantages between the different working environment systems, Environment, Health and Safety (EHS) and Systematic working environment (SAM). EHS is a system used world wide in the group of GE and also obligated by GE healthcare Umeå. The Swedish environment working system SAM is regulated by the Swedish working environment law (AML) and has to be obeyed of all companies in Sweden. Routines for risk management were performed by close cooperation with production leaders, safety officers and staff from each workstation, which were a prerequisite to come through work with routines for risk management. A model was prepared for the continuously on-going work with safety risk assessments at GE Healthcare Umeå, which in the long run will take additional developments. To make the job with valuing and classifying the risk easier, a risk matrix was created. The biggest differences between the two evaluated systems are that EHS is an integrated system, which also includes the external environment while SAM is a system that only handles the working environment
