Risk Assessment Consultancy
Under UK law, all organisations with 5 or more staff are required to carry out written health and safety risk assessments covering all significant hazards.
risk assessment is not about creating huge amounts of paperwork , but rather about identifying sensible measures to control the risks in your workplace. You are probably already taking steps to protect your employees, but your risk assessment will help you decide whether you have covered all you need to.
Think about how accidents and ill health could happen and concentrate on real risks – those that are most likely and which will cause the most harm.
For some risks, other regulations require particular control measures. Your assessment can help you identify where you need to look at certain risks and these particular control measures in more detail. These control measures do not have to be assessed separately but can be considered as part of, or an extension of, your overall risk assessment.
Health & Safety Executive guidance details a 5-step approach to conducting these analyses. It goes as follows:
Identify the hazards 100%
Decide who might be harmed and how 100%
Evaluate the risks and decide on precautions 100%
Record your significant findings 100%
Review your assessment and update if necessary 100%
