A Risk Assessment is a structured process of evaluating the potential risks that may be involved in any activity undertaken at work.
As Risk Assessments are a legal requirement for every employer it is imperative that all areas of risk within your business have been eliminated, reduced, isolated and controlled by:
- Reviewing your hazards
- Determining your level of risk
- Enhancing your current health and safety arrangements
What are the benefits of Risk Assessments?
- They can help you to run your business safely
- Reduce the risk of accidents
- Improve morale
- Enhance your safety culture
- Have a direct positive effect on your bottom line
By identifying what activities, substances, machinery, etc could cause harm and who to, you can then decide if you are doing enough to control that harm. Sometimes it may mean removing the harm completely, such as noxious fumes, other times it may mean a combination of guards, safe systems, training and protective equipment, such as when using machinery.
