Every organisation must carry out workplace risk assessments, and if done effectively this process will help you manage health and safety risks. They help focus on what, in your business might cause harm to people and decide whether you are doing enough to prevent that harm.
The Management of Health and safety Regulation 1999 states that employers with five or more employees must record the significant findings of their risk assessment. This record should represent an effective statement of hazards and risks which should then lead to relevant actions being taken to protect health and safety.
We can undertake these assessments on your behalf by understanding what working practices your business undertakes and identifying the correct control measures you require. This will assist in you working safer, your employees and others being safe from hazards and keeping you legally compliant.
Risk assessments include
- Generic assessments
- Site specific (workplace visit required)
