All businesses must assess and manage the health and safety risks present within their workplace as required by the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999. The purpose of the assessment is to identify what needs to be done to control the risks present.
Assessments can cover general workplace risks, manual handling operations, Display Screen Equipment use and detailed individual assessments for the specific hazards young workers, pregnant workers and other vulnerable groups may be exposed to.
Carrying out comprehensive assessments can help you to run your business safely, reduce the risk of accidents, improve morale, enhance your safety culture and have a directly positive effect on your bottom line.
Ensuring that all of your assessments are up-to-date can also give you peace of mind. You know you are complying with the law, you know that your employees are trained; you know that you have done everything reasonably practicable to protect staff (and others) and you have written that down.
