Company Risk Assessments

 

RISK ASSESSMENTS

Are there five or more in your organisation?

If so you are legally required to assess the risks in your workplace.

If your organisation employs five or more people including managers, you must write down any significant findings from the risk assessment.

 

What is a Risk Assessment?

A risk assessment is a careful examination of what, in your work could harm people. It helps you decide whether you have done enough to prevent anyone coming to harm, or need to do more.

By law the risk assessment must be ‘suitable and sufficient’. This means it must be good enough to protect people from any harm you can predict. Your risk assessment does not need to be complicated however it should be thorough and accurate because you need to use the informantion to help you control risks. It will help you to decide how serious the risks are and which solutions are ‘reasonably practicable’ for you to control them.

A risk assessment is an important step in protecting your workers and your business, as well as complying with the law. It helps you focus on the risks that really matter in your workplace – the clients with the potential to cause real harm. In many instances, straightforward measures can readily control risks, for most that means simple, cheap and effective measures to ensure your most valuable asset – your workforce – are protected. The law does not expect you to eliminate all risk but you are required to protect people as far as ‘reasonably practicable’.
