What is an assessment? 

An assessment is an evaluation of activity in an area that utilizes hazardous materials or processes. This can be anything from working in a lab with chemcials, lasers, centrifuges, augres etc... or working n a shop with tools or compressed gases.

 The assessment in RSS is structured into categories with specific activities.  To complete an assessment, a person with responsibility or delegated responsibility must  complete an online  yes / no questionnaire indicating a presence or absence of the request activity type.


What is a group?
