Risk Assessment: Assessing the Risk of Hazards in the Workplace

health & safety

Demystified

A risk assessment is a logical approach to deciding what hazards in the work place could lead to injury or ill health through normal and foreseeable work practices. This could be to employees or non-employees, both at their workplace or when they are out and about carrying out work activities such as deliveries.

Risk Assessment is a Legal Requirement

Essential to keeping your employees safe and well is the assessment and management of risk in the workplace. Risk assessment is a legal requirement and forms the cornerstone for all your occupational health and safety.

Safewell’s approach to this is practical, enabling and effective. Think of us as an umbrella capturing the risks and workplace hazards to which your business may be vulnerable and working with you to protect, educate and equip your business in the future.

We do this by:

Working closely with you to complete a full Risk assessment

Providing you with clearly written documentation relating to identified risks and managing potential hazards

Delivering pragmatic recommendations for employee training to help create and maintain a safe working environment

At Safewell, we believe that by engaging in risk assessments right from the start, your occupational health and safety provision will:

Remain relevant

Add value and purpose

Be compliant

At Safewell we can complete individual risk assessments for you or if you haven’t started with any risk assessments yet we’d recommend our Umbrella Risk Assessment to identify all the significant hazards at your work place. Start as you mean to go on!

Umbrella Risk Assessment

Safewell’s Umbrella Risk Assessment is like an audit. But with a difference – its risk based, so the recommendations are prioritised based on the risks at your place of work and it is documented as a risk assessment, which is the first priority for any business under health and safety law.
