What is risk assessment?
Every employer is under a statutory duty to arrange for a “competent person” to assess all risks arising at the workplace, or created by work activities. Some risks are of a general nature, but others will need to be considered against more specialised legislation.
Risk assessment is also a valuable opportunity for you to identify any potential problems and dangers before they happen. This simple process can save you thousands of pounds in lost time, production, and injured or demotivated staff. The trick is to integrate this process into your working procedures rather than making it an add-on job when often it becomes little more than a “tick-box” exercise.
What Risk Assessments Do You Need?
The more common subjects that require assessment include:
- For General risks (tasks, processes or work areas within your organisation)
(Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations)
- Where exposure to substances may cause damage to health
(Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations)
- At workstations where computers are used
(Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations). See > more details.
- Where hazardous lifting or carrying tasks are undertaken
(Manual Handling Operations Regulations)
- In noisy environments which could cause damage to hearing
(Noise at Work Regulations)
See more details in > Environmental services.
- Fire safety
The fire risk assessment should consider the building layout and construction, its use, materials and processes, fire management arrangements and fire protective systems.
- Other specific requirements for assessments include: selection and use of personal protective equipment (PPE) and assessing the presence, type and location of asbestos. Please click here if you are looking for asbestos assessments and surveys
How we can help
We can arrange for a qualified safety practitioner to carry out risk assessments on your behalf. Our assessment may take the form of a general risk review, or may involve a more detailed analysis of a specific hazard. Simply click here to request a call from us:
We have our own standard report forms for all types of risk assessment, and these can be adapted to suit your own needs at no extra cost. The copyright of our forms will be waived so that you can continue with the same system once we have finished on site.
If you already use your own style of paperwork, we will be pleased to work to that format.
