What is a Risk Assessment?

A risk assessment is an examination of hazards in the workplace that could potentially cause harm to the workforce.  All businesses are required to conduct risk assessments. According to Health & Safety Regulations 1999 those with 5 or more employees must record this information. 

The Health and Safety Executive have produced a simple five step guide to conducting a risk assessment.

Step 1  -  Identify Hazards: A Hazard is any thing that can cause harm in the workplace. Eg: Slippery Floor, Chemicals, etc.  A Risk is the probability that someone may be harmed by that hazard.

Step 2  -  Ascertain who could be harmed and how?  Pay particular attention to those with particular risks such as expectant mothers, less-abled people.  Consider those people that may not be in the workplace all the time.

Step 3  -  Evaluate the risks. Decide if existing precautions are sufficient:  The main aim is to make any risks small and take as many precautions as possible to either eradicate the risk or control it so harm is unlikely to occur. Eg: Issue PPE equipment, prevent access, provide washing facilities etc.

Step 4  -  Record your findings:  List all hazards that you find, list all precations taken and conclusions. You must then share your findings with employees. Retain written records as a point of reference and as proof if an inspector asks what precautions have been take.

Step 5  -  Review assessment and revise it if necessary: As new machinery, substances or procedures are introduced to the workplace, it maybe necessary to amend and review present risk assessments to ascertain if they are still working effectively.
