What is the basis of the SAQ Light?
The tool uses 5 levels of maturity. Companies decide which level they wish to achieve.
Furthermore, the tool asks questions on 19 topics that are most important to safety. Examples are: risk identification and analysis, work control, dealing with changes, planning for emergencies, etc. By answering these questions themselves with "yes" or "no", the current level of maturity is measured for each topic.
To reach the next level, the tool gives advice. These help in making the improvement plan.
