What is a Health & Safety Risk Assessment?
A Health & Safety Risk Assessment is a methodical look at the risks within your workplace that could cause harm to people. From this Assessment you will be able to see whether you have taken enough precautions, or should do more to prevent harm. Workers and visitors have a right to be protected from harm in the workplace caused by a failure to take reasonable control measures. Accidents or work related health issues can seriously affect your business. Loss of output, the possibility of court action, and potential insurance issues if damages are awarded are all very real threats if you fail to address Health and Safety issues. You are legally required to assess the risks within your workplace, and have written plans to address any potential risks.
Is it a legal requirement to undertake risk assessments?
Yes. All employers have a legal obligation to protect the health and safety of their workforce. Regulation 3, of the Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations 1999, requires, among other things, that all employers assess the risks to the health and safety of their employees while they are at work.
We have assessors in all areas of the UK to carry out your assessment requirements.
