A large part of your companies Health and Safety system, after the initial Health and Safety Policy, is compiling useful concise assessments of risk of all the companies activities carried out in it’s day to day operation.
These Risk Assessments look at each step of the process in detail, it identifies the hazard that may put staff, customers or members of the public at risk of harm, it then assesses the likelihood and severity of that hazard causing harm. This gives us a risk rating for the hazard.
The Risk Assessment then proposes a solution, a mitigating control of the risk by either removing the hazard, minimizing exposure to the hazard, changing aspects of the hazard to reduce the negative outcome of exposure, engineering an alternative method or material, or as a last line of defense providing PPE or other physical control measures that will reduce the negative effect of the hazard in the event of exposure.
The risk assessment then gives a residual risk rating, a quantified assessment of the hazard after the additional control measures have been implemented.
A good Risk Assessment also goes on to prioritises the action points by severity and offers reasonable lead times for the proposed actions to be completed.
The HSE states:
“Workers (and anyone else who could potentially be affected by their work) have a right to be protected from harm. A risk assessment is simply a careful examination of the harm which could be caused through any work activity. This helps employers check whether appropriate control measures are in place, or if they need to do more to prevent harm. If any significant risks are identified, then the risk assessment must include an assessment of such risk.
Any significant findings from the assessment should be written down if you employ five or more people and this can then be used to help manage workplace risks and communicate them to employees.”
