Risk Assessment Guide
We’re working in partnership with Alcumus PSM to offer practical help and guidance on the need and application of your workplace and home risk assessments.
Do you need help understanding what a risk assessment is?
The purpose of a risk assessment is to help to identify the significant hazards and evaluate any associated risks within the workplace. When a risk assessment is complete you can issue appropriate control measures to protect employees and others against harm or injury.
The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 requires that “every employer shall make a suitable & sufficient assessment of the risks to the health & safety of their employees to which they are exposed to while at work”. And if you have five or more employees you need to ensure that these processes are written down and accessible to your employees.
