Good Risk Assessments are vital to any business and are a legal requirement under the Health & Safety at Work Act.
The Health & Safety at Work Act stipulates that Employers who employ 5 or more employees must carry out and record in writing Risk Assessments. Employers who employ less than 5 employees are still required to complete Risk Assessments but they do not need to be written, however in the event of an incident you need to be able to prove you have carried these out, and therefore our strong recommendation is that ALL risk assessments are recorded.
This review process being focussed on your existing risk assessments. On receipt of your risk’s assessments, via email or a cloud-based operating system e.g. Dropbox (free version), our Consultant will review their compliance and contents*1. The compliance of such being based on the HSE’s ‘5-Steps to Risk Assessment’, noted below:
*1Disclaimer: Due to the nature of this type of review process i.e. ‘Remote’, it must be noted by you that we (W&W H&S Consultants Ltd) cannot be held responsible for the omissions of hazard and subsequent associated control measures, which may be related to the tasks being carried out, chemical, biological, environment, etc. Therefore, the responsibility for the identification of such hazards, which we cannot be possibly aware of without visiting your place of work will be with your nominated responsible person only.
