The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations state:
“An employer is required to undertake an assessment of the risks to health and safety of their employees and others who may be affected by their work activity.”
A professionally conducted assessment will identify whether the processes you have in place are capable of controlling the associated risks identified. The process of developing a risk assessment will also provide an opportunity to formulate a workable and realistic action plan to help you if any gaps need to be filled or processes strengthened or replaced.
It is also important to remember that this plan (and the risk assessment itself) will form an essential part of your defence should you find yourself facing a civil claim or prosecution from an Enforcement Officer.
Sometimes it is hard to know what is required or where to start. For many the risk assessment process can also be time consuming, complicated and even bureaucratic. However, from a legal perspective you need to be able to prove the required risks assessments have been completed to the appropriate standard.
