What are Risk Assessments?
Risk assessments form a significant part of managing health and safety at work. If you employ five or more persons you are required to prepare your risk assessments in writing.
There are various types of risk assessment including:
General risk assessment
DSE workstation assessment
Working at height assessment
Manual handling assessment
Lone working assessment
First aid needs assessment
Children and Young Persons assessment
New and Expectant Mothers assessment
Home working risk assessment
What is included?
If you require support preparing your risk assessments or perhaps they need updating; or you're unsure which ones apply to your business or what to do with them once they are prepared, please get in touch.
I can draft your risk assessments to ensure you are compliant, or if you prefer I can offer coaching and training to help you manage the process yourself. The coaching will help you become more confident in identifying the risks in your business and the types of controls needed to reduce the risks. This training programme gives you all the necessary tools and templates, together with my expert guidance.
Who's it for?
Business owners or managers who are looking to effectively manage their safety risks and require a review or complete preparation of all required risk assessments associated with the work activities.
Risk assessments are likely to be inspected if you receive a visit from an enforcing authority, they can support your case in the event of health and safety litigation and if used correctly can help reduce your accident rate and demonstrate to your clients you take safety seriously.
