Why carry out a assessment

As an employer, you’re required by law to protect your employees, and others, from harm.

Under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, the minimum you must do is:

  • Identify what could cause injury or illness in your business (hazards)
  • Decide how likely it is that someone could be harmed and how seriously (the risk)
  • Take action to eliminate the hazard, or if this isn’t possible, control the risk.

Assessing risk is just one part of the overall process used to control risks in your workplace.

What is a Risk Assessment?

A risk assessment is a careful examination of anything in their work environment that could cause injury or ill health. It is about deciding who might be harmed and then judging how likely it is that something will go wrong, and how serious the consequences could be.

Once you worked out what the risks are and how significant they are, they can concentrate on cutting them out – or at least controlling them.

Control the health and safety risks in your workplace is crucial. To prevent accidents from happening, it is necessary to think about what, in your company, might cause harm to people. assessment shows you whether your business meets all the requirements to protect employees.

How can you prevent an accident from happening?

You can never prevent an accident from happening but you can reduce the likelihood and the consequence by;

  • Eliminating the hazard.
  • Reduce/substitute the hazard.
  • Prevent contact tom the hazard.
  • Introducing a safe system of work
  • Use of Personal Protective clothing/equipment

You must be aware that there is a risk of one happening.

Our expert consultants will assist you to carry out the Assessments, enabling you to identify:

  • The hazards (anything that has the potential to cause harm) present in your workplace
  • People who might be harmed and how
  • What the company is already doing to control them
  • Actions your company needs to take to remove or reduce the risks
