In your workplace there will be a variety of different activities taking place, these may require an employee to clean a part using chemicals, to lift a heavy load or to work in an area where there is a high noise level. These work activities present risks to employees’ health and safety.

A risk assessment is a necessary and useful task in tackling the risk of ill health at work. All employers are required to carry out a risk assessment at their place of work and to keep a written record of that risk assessment.

In this risk, assessment training we will explain the practical steps that you can take to comply with this legal requirement. 

– Provide direction on risk assessment.
– Outline the risk assessment process.
– Provide examples of the relationship between risk assessment and workplace health.

Conducting effective risk assessment helps you to target the hazards that have real potential to cause harm and to put improvements or control measures in place to reduce the likelihood of anyone being harmed

Section 19 of the Safety, Health, and Welfare at Work Act 2005 requires that employers and those who control workplaces to any extent must identify the hazards in the workplaces under their control and assess the risks to safety and health at work presented by these hazards.

Employers must examine and write down these workplace risks and what to do about them. Ultimately, assessing risk means that anything in the workplace that could cause harm to your employees, other employees, and other people (including customers, visitors, and members of the
public) must be carefully examined. This allows you to estimate the magnitude of risk and decide whether the risk is acceptable or whether more precautions need to be taken to prevent harm.

Employers are required to implement any improvements considered necessary by the risk assessment. The aim is to ensure that no one gets hurt or becomes ill.
