Our Risk Assessment Service

Every employer is required by law to make a suitable and sufficient assessment of:
a) The risks to health and safety of his employees to which they are exposed whilst they are at work;
b) The risks to health and safety of persons not in his employment arising out of, or in connection with, the conduct by him of his undertaking.

We produce two types of Risk Assessment:

Generic Risk Assessment –

Generic Risk Assessments are made to cover the basic features involved when carrying out activities where the hazards and risks associated with them are similar, even when carried out in different physical work areas or workplaces.
Generic Risk Assessments come as standard with our Safety Policies

Task Specific Risk Assessment –

There are likely to be situations, in specific areas or on specific occasions, when a Generic assessment will not be sufficiently detailed. In these situations, where specific hazards are associated with particular situations, a special assessment must be made every time that work is done.

Our assessments detail control measures in line with Regulation and Approved Codes of Practice that must be followed, in order to reduce the risk of accident or injury from hazards that have been identified. However, it is recommended that a separate Safe Method of Work Statement be produced for situations such as demolition, erection of steelwork structures or the removal of asbestos, or where a Risk Assessment has identified that certain hazards cannot be eliminated and risk factors remain.
