Interactive Risk Assessment tool (IRAT) in Ireland: BeSMART

Interactive Risk Assessment tool (IRAT) in Ireland: BeSMART

All employers are required to risk assess their work activities and identify, ‘so far as is reasonably foreseeable’, all hazards that can cause accidents or ill health. BeSMART is an interactive web-based tool designed to allow SMEs to comply with these legal requirements by producing and recording OSH risk assessments.

This case study describes BeSMART’s journey: from its development in 2010 until now it has reached over a quarter of all Irish SMEs, with approximately 43,000 registered users. The case study also elaborates on challenges for the future of BeSMART and other online interactive risk assessment tools, as well as its success factors.
