Risk Assessments

The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations

The Regulations set out responsibilities for carrying out risk assessments and health surveillance in the workplace, as well as putting health and safety arrangements in place, including assistance. Other responsibilities set out by the Regulations include: procedures for serious and imminent danger and for danger areas; co-operations and co-ordination between employers sharing work premises; self-employed persons' undertakings; working in hosted premises; providing information for employers; capabilities and training; employees' duties and responsibilities towards temporary workers.

Regulation 3 places a duty to conduct a risk assessment that includes consideration of what in your business might cause harm, how, and who might be affected. It should take into account any controls which are already in place and identify what, if any, further controls are required. It is also stated in the Regulations that if there are 5 or more employees, the findings must be recorded. I can help you with how this should be carried out..
