Description for photo - Example of a Risk Assessment Tool
A table with three main columns. From left to right, the first column does not have a heading and the rows below it are filled with numbers to denote each risk situation listed in the second column. The heading of the second column says: Risk Situation. The heading of the last column says: Check risk level for each risk situation. The last column is divided into three sub-columns. From left to right the headings are L, M, H. Under the Risk Situation heading there are seven rows that each contain text stating a risk situation. The first risk situation states: How much of your plant production is purchased from off-nursery sources? L = 0% to 30%, M = 30 to 70%, H = 70 to 100%. The second risk situation states: Are your suppliers certified (Clean Plants or CNCP)? L = All suppliers are certified, M = Some suppliers are certified, H = None of the suppliers are certified. The third risk situation states: How much of your plant purchases come from areas with CFIA regulated pests? L = 30%, M = 30 – 70%, H = 70 – 100%. The fourth risk situation states: How much of your plant purchases are from U.S.A. suppliers? L = 0 to 30%, M = 30 to 70%, H = 70 to 100%. The fifth risk situation states: When receiving plants from outside sources, how often do you inspect for pests and document the inspection in writing? L = All shipments are inspected and documented, M = Shipments are inspected but there is no documentation, H = Shipments are not inspected on arrival. The sixth risk situation states: How many CFIA regulated Pests are identified for your growing location? L = 0 to 2, M = 3 to 10, H = over 10. The seventh risk situation states: Considering "trace-back" of products to suppliers and clients: L = All plants can be traced to purchasers and suppliers via electronic or paper records, M = Plants can be traced to purchaser but cannot be traced to supplier, H = The nursery does not have a documented trace-back system.
