What is a Risk Assessment?
A risk assessment looks at all your business work activities and considers what could go wrong and put employee's health and safety, or lives at risk. The workplace risk assessment then recommends what action should be taken to either eliminate or, if not possible, reduce the risk as far as reasonably and practicable possible.
Why do I need a risk assessment?
Every business must have written risk assessments, which have been carried out by a 'competent person' who has been appointed by the employer. This can be the employer, an employee or a third party, such as ShopSafe®. The risk assessment must be freely available to all employees and the business services and suppliers providers and kept up to date.
