Risk Assessment workplace guide

Risk Assessments are simply a process of carefully examining what could cause harm to people in the workplace environment and then deciding what precautions should be taken to prevent or minimise harm.

The aim is to eliminate or reduce the likelihood of someone being injured or becoming ill. Accidents and ill health can ruin lives and affect the profitability of businesses through lost output, damaged machinery, increased insurance costs and legal costs.

To help you and your business our Health & Safety experts have put together a helpful guide covering everything you need to know when it comes to your legal responsibility for carrying our Risk Assessments.
