Protect personnel from hazards
Employers are required by law to carry out regular risk assessmentsin their company to protect employees from possible physical and mental hazards. A professional employee survey is the most cost-efficient and time-efficient means of identifying potential risks and measuring the degree of various stresses in the workforce.
In full service, we work with you to develop a catalogue of questions individually tailored to your company and advise you on communication, inviting participants and follow-up measures. We have many years of experience in the design and implementation of risk assessments in almost all industries. Benefit from the experience of our experts and create a safe working environment for your team.
We are very satisfied with the online hazard assessment, which we have been carrying out as a full-service project with our service provider Rogator several times a year for many years. The short lead times and the fast and flexible processing of our requests by the Rogator team are particularly helpful. We are always comprehensively advised and proactively supported in our company health management and are therefore very happy to recommend Rogator.
– Bettina Finger, Generali Deutschland AG
Rogator has convinced us as a service provider. Both the competence and the commitment of the employees exceeded our expectations.
– Ingo Bittner, Hess Natur-Textilien GmbH
During the implementation of our worldwide employee survey, we felt in good hands with our service provider Rogator at all times. We particularly appreciate the fast response time and flexibility, even in the case of last-minute changes or requests, as well as the high quality of the services.

Your advantages in employee research with Rogator
Your capacities for carrying out and supervising a risk assessment are limited? We would be pleased to take over this task for you. Rogator is your reliable partner in recording employee interests. From preliminary communication, questionnaire development and implementation to result evaluation and presentation, we support you in all project steps if desired.
Anonymity and data protection
We attach great importance to anonymity and data protection. The results are only broken down in accordance with evaluation thresholds to such an extent that it is impossible to draw conclusions about individual participants, but you can still gain detailed insights at departmental or team level. In addition, your sensitive data is managed exclusively on our certified server park, which excludes access by third parties and guarantees the protection of your data at all times.
Our action tracking tool enables you or the responsible executives or health managers to document the planning and implementation of the subsequent measures and follow-up processes. The contents and access rights to this platform are of course individually tailored to your needs.
Three steps to online risk assessment
In a personal or virtual workshop, we develop a concept tailored to your company in terms of advance communication, invitation and participation channels, questionnaire content and evaluation. We would also be pleased to support you in the development and design of suitable communication media such as posters, flyers etc. We guarantee that the content of the questionnaire complies with the legal requirements and at the same time is tailored to the specific needs of your company.
The iteratively coordinated questionnaire is programmed and tested by us. Layout and design can be individually adapted to your corporate design. Within the field phase, i.e. the defined survey period, the employees give their details on the selected questions. To increase the response rate, we also send reminders for participation in this phase.
After the end of the survey we summarize the results for you in clear reports. Depending on the organizational structure and number of participants per unit, reports can be generated at overall, location, department and/or team level. The reports provide indications of specific risk potentials and thus form the basis for the derivation of measures. When evaluating the data, previously defined evaluation thresholds are of course stored and adhered to in order to ensure 100% anonymity of all participants. Furthermore, you will receive a certificate from us about the execution of the risk assessment and its contents.
Rogator advises you individually on all questions regarding the risk assessment
Is a risk assessment at all relevant for me?
Since 2013, all employers have been obliged to protect the mental health of their employees in addition to maintaining their physical integrity. Use two short self-tests to find out to what extent your employees may be exposed to certain stress factors.
When and how often should a risk assessment be carried out?
Two important keywords to answer this question are: "regular" and "on demand". Anyone who regularly (about once a year) implements a standardized employee survey on the topic can integrate relevant questions on the risk assessment there. This gives you a time series comparison that allows you to proactively determine whether current health and accident prevention measures are effective and sufficient - or whether these measures need to be modified to protect employees.
Which are the topics to be covered in a risk assessment ?
The following dimensions should always be queried as part of a risk assessment:
- Work content and tasks
- Work organisation
- Social relations
- Working environment
- Company-specific features
Are open questions within the risk assessment useful?
Open questions within a risk assessment can provide valuable additional input and uncover previously unknown stresses and hazard potentials. In order to keep the effort of the evaluation as low as possible, Rogator recommends a limitation of the characters. To preserve anonymity - especially in small companies or departments - it makes sense to indicate that the open answers should be worded neutrally.
How can employees without PCs participate in the risk assessment?
At Rogator, employees from all areas of the company (administration, production, logistics, etc.) can participate in the risk assessment. Our experts will be glad to advise you on the optimal survey and invitation procedure, such as a hybrid survey, participation via smartphone or a paper-pencil survey.
Is data protection and anonymity of the participants guaranteed?
Particularly in the case of sensitive issues such as the psychological strain on employees, implementation by an external survey institute such as Rogator has a clear advantage over possible internal implementation. Rogator acts here as trustee of your data and only transmits the results in aggregated form. External invitation management, pseudonymised survey links and minimum participant numbers contribute to the highest possible level of data protection.
