Vernon CMS 12.2, Coastal Cormorant, introduces updated risk and hazard tables in the Object datafile, and a new file in the Activities module for managing risks and hazards in, and to your collection.
In the Object datafile, there is one new table and one extended table in the Administration & Risk Assessment tab. The Risk to Object table extends the existing Risk Management table and allows you to record anything that is a risk to the object. For example, recording if an object is especially vulnerable to water damage. The Hazard in the Object table allows you to record any hazards that are present because of the object. For example, recording if an object contains explosive or toxic material that could be released and create a hazard to other objects and people.
The Risk/Hazard Type datafile allows you to detail policies and procedures relating to the risk or hazard so that they can be quickly and easily accessed. You can also record authorised and prohibited locations for items containing the risk or hazard. The Risk/Hazard Type datafile extends the Risk Type datafile from earlier versions with many new fields.
The Risk to Object and Hazard in Object tables in the Administration & Risk Assessment window.
If you wish to search on Assessment Date, Hazard Assessment, Hazard Type, and Hazard Assessment Date, you will need to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to enable this.
The Risk Management Activity is available to all sites that have purchased the Activities Module. It provides the ability to track and manage a range of risk and hazard events, from one-off events to ongoing management. As with all Activities, you can link to multiple objects and activities to get a full picture of the risk or hazard. For example, if an object becomes damaged due to a hazard event, you can track it against the Risk Management activity, and then link to any Condition Report and Treatment activities that result.
