RISK ASSESSMENT

Under Regulation 3 of the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, employers have an absolute* duty to carry out an assessment of the risks to safety contained within and created by their business operations, and to reduce risk to an acceptable level. The findings of the assessment must then be recorded in writing.
*Where an absolute duty applies, the employer must comply regardless.

PURPOSE OF LEGISLATION: To have employers take a proactive approach to Health and Safety issues by identifying potential hazards and putting into place control measures before an accident takes place.

In the case of a serious injury occurring at work, an employer who has not carried out Risk Assessments would invariably be found guilty as charged and face the consequences. The only valid defence against prosecution would be that
"the cause of the accident was unforeseeable".

HSAS SUPPORT: We work in close conjunction with clients in carrying out risk assessments of their operations. We provide a written report of findings and prepare a proposed action plan covering deficiencies or opportunities for improvement.
