Health and Safety Risk Assessments in Shropshire

Practical advice to enable staff to carry out risk assessments and to assist with identifying relevant hazards and control measures for each client.

Assessing the risk of harm to people in the workplace is an essential step towards legal compliance and effective risk management.  It is also a sensible business decision, as it helps to maintain productivity, decrease staff absenteeism, protect assets from damage and maintain a positive reputation.

The risk assessment process starts with the identification of hazards in the workplace that have the potential to cause harm to people and property.  These hazards are then assessed to determine the level of risk that they pose and what control measures are required to eliminate or reduce the risk of harm.  The law generally requires adequate health and safety controls to protect people from harm.

The cost of carrying out risk assessments or reviewing your current assessments will depend on the complexity of your processes, age of building, number of employees etc. - Specific Prices are provided on request.

There is a legal requirement for all employers to conduct risk assessments for foreseeable significant health and safety risks.  Where an organisation employs five or more people then records of risk assessments must be made.

SAFETY SOLUTIONS FOR YOUR BUSINESS

Health and Safety Services - Risk Assessments

Tap into our knowledge

We can offer assistance in identifying foreseeable significant risks and developing suitable and sufficient risk assessments.  In accordance with Health and Safety Executives advice we do not produce risk assessments in isolation; we have a strict policy of preparing them in partnership with our client so that risks can be properly identified and controlled.  We do not offer standard generic risk assessments as they may not control our clients specific risks and may not meet statutory requirements.

The more common subjects that require assessment include…

Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations: For General tasks

Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations: Where exposure to substances may cause damage to health.

Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations: Where exposure to substances may cause damage to health.

Manual Handling Operations Regulations: Where hazardous lifting or carrying tasks are undertaken.

Noise at Work Regulations: In noisy environments which could cause damage to hearing.

Fire safety: All non-domestic premises

The Risk Assessment Process

We understand that you may not have the resources to complete the risk assessments for your company. The best people to do risk assessments are those doing the job.  They understand the processes, the current control measures and the potential hazards associated with the job. Adele will work with employees on a one-to-one basis to format your company risk assessments.  She can also deliver risk assessment training directly to staff so they can understand the process and more importantly, the hierarchy of control measures.  Have a look at my Training Page for details of relevant courses.
