Risk assessment is the foundation of health and safety management…it’s also the law! Risk assessment is simply is a review of your current business to determine what in your work could potentially cause harm to people and if you have taken adequate precautions to prevent any harm from happening. All businesses are required to conduct risk assessment and if you have 5 or more employees, it must be recorded.
It’s important that the process of risk assessment is not over complicated and that you involve staff throughout your business. It is impossible to eliminate all risk however you are required to protect people as is ‘reasonably practicable’. Qubic Print Risk Assessment Forms are designed in easy-to-use formats, each with helpful Information Guide Sheets and we even provide durable wallets in which to store your forms.
If your business is involved in particularly hazardous or complex processes, you may require additional resources to carry out your risk assessment and you should always seek professional advice as appropriate.
