Risk Assessment & Management
“A risk assessment is a careful examination of what could cause harm to people in the workplace. A good risk assessment will help avoid accidents and ill health, which can not only ruin lives, but can also increase costs to business through lost output, compensation claims and higher insurance premiums.”

What are an employer’s legal obligations regarding Risk Assessments?
“Employers have a legal obligation to protect their health and safety and that of their workforce. Regulation 3, of the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, requires, among other things, that all employers assess the risks to the health and safety of their employees while they are at work.”
