Personal Protective Equipment Risk Assessment Input Forms


TIRA has been designed to be modular, in this we mean if you learn how to input records into the PPE module the principles are appropriately the same for all the other risk assessment types covered by the application.  This will greatly increase the speed at which new user can become accustomed to and prolific in managing their risk assessment responsibilities via TIRA.




When you first load TIRA the program will place the focus to to the Ref ID field. TIRA initially generates a unique reference number which may be changed now or later to match your own referencing convention.


Header Tab


PPE Reference No: Unique identification allocated to the risk assessment (duplicate Ref IDs are not permitted)

Location / Site: Identifies the workplace where the PPE risk assessment applies to

Task Being Assessed: Records details of task the PPE is being assessed against.

Assessor One and Two: Records the details of the any individuals assisting in the risk assessment process, typically the employee undertaking the task, a supervisor and or team leader etc this will vary from company to company


Date: PPE assessment undertaken on


Time: PPE assessment undertaken at


Review Date: Date the PPE risk assessment should be reviewed for accuracy and continuing suitability.


Review Not Required: Prevents the programme from placing the PPE assessment on the overdue remainder report after its review date is past.  Typically used where companies are using temporary or contract staff or one time only operations not likely to be repeated by the time the next review is due.


Navigation Bar: (bottom left) Provides the following ways to navigate through records;


First Record

Previous Record

Number of Record within Record-set

Next Record

Last Record

Filter Box

Search Box


Duplicate Record: Will replicate an exact copy of the PPE risk assessment and allocate a unique and temporary reference ID. (see duplicate record for further details)


The tabs across the PPE input form are split into logical groups of questions that would be asked during a PPE  risk assessment.  The layout my change slightly from tab to tab but the principal is then same throughout.  Questions on the left, followed by a yes / no / na and blank response and any relevant comments.  Some questions may have check box yes / no responses only, the reason will be evident in such cases.


Tip: When in the yes / no / na field the response can be toggle between the 3 possible answers by


a) double clicking the mouse whilst hovering over the field,

b) pressing the space-bar whilst the field has the focus i.e is highlighted yellow.


Header Page Button:  Quickly return you to the header details page from any tab


Jump to Actions Button: Quickly takes you to the actions tab for entering any concerns found during the PPE risk assessment


Back to Previous Button: Quickly returns you back to the tab you were working in when you clicked on the Jump to Actions Button.  This allows user to quickly flick between the findings page and the actions tab for easily entering concerns without losing their place within the PPE input form.


Data entered into any fields in the PPE assessment input pages is replicated into a professionally designed PPE risk assessment report.


The PPE risk assessment asks question to covers the following areas;


General PPE Question, 3 pages

PPE Characteristics,  4 pages (Head / Legs etc)


Further tabs are listed on the PPE Introduction page
