What is risk assessment?
can provide a qualified safety practitioner to assess the risk
to your business. Significant
hazards are identified and the level of risk from those hazards
control measures are then applied in order to reduce the risk
to an acceptable level (as low as is reasonable practicable).
A general risk assessment will identify overall risk; however
specific risk assessments may be necessary with regard to specialised
legislation (i.e. Control of Lead at Work Regulations 1998).
The more common subjects that give rise to an assessment duty are:
For General risks (Management
of Health and Safety at Work Regulations)
Where exposure to substances may cause
damage to health (Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012)
(Control of Lead at Work Regulations)
At workstations where computers are used (Health
and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations)
Where hazardous lifting or carrying tasks
are undertaken (Manual Handling Operations Regulations)
In noisy environments which could cause
damage to hearing (Control of Noise at Work Regulations)
Fire Safety Regulatory Reform
(Fire Safety) Order
