Infectious Disease Threats Risk Assessment Tool for Acute Care

The IDT ORA Tool follows a six-step risk management process and is divided into two worksheets:

1) Risk Identification and Analysis Worksheet; and

2) Risk Assessment and Management Worksheet.


A fillable Word version of the tool is available, consolidated into one worksheet.  Note: The use of the tool is not mandatory.  


It is important for organizations that elect to use the tool for their annual ORA to read the supporting guide and customize the tool to reflect their workplace, as well as the corresponding hazards and risks of exposure.
