Impact assessments assist in identifying the future consequences of an event. Completing an impact assessment should be one of the first things you do when you are alerted about a potential threat.
How do I complete an Impact Assessment?
Once you have created an event, in the Event Room, click Start your impact assessment
From the information that you have available regarding the event, select the relevant impact area(s) and level of impact(s) for each of the categories that are relevant.
Once complete, scroll to the end of the page and click Save.
A pop-up will appear with a summary of the impact assessment, along with the date and time. Click Save to finalise the impact assessment.
The Event Room will update, identifying the top three area(s) of impact and their corresponding level of impact.
To redo the assessment, click the redo icon.
As the situation changes you can redo the assessment at any time, this may indicate that the situation is escalating or deescalating. Your previous impact assessment(s) are saved in the event report.
