Health & Safety Risk Assessment
What is a Health & Safety Risk Assessment?
A Health & Safety Risk Assessment is a logical method to assess the risk posed by a Health & Safety hazard.
How is a Health & Safety Risk Assessment undertaken?
Health & Safety Risk Assessment involves rating a hazard for its consequence, frequency, and likelihood and arriving at a score (for eg. by using the table below). This score would then determine the level of risk a hazard poses, ranging from high risk to low risk.
What happens after this?
The risk rating then assists businesses to prioritise the hazards that need to have controls implemented for.
What sort of controls would need to be put in place?
The first choice for a business should be to attempt to eliminate the hazard. If this is not an option then the hazard should be isolated or minimised.
