Employers, including the self-employed are legally required to identify hazards in any workplace under their control and carry out risk assessments.
Our consultants understand that each business is different, so when it comes to risk assessment no one size fits all – our practical approach will save you time and resources.
Carrying out a risk assessment involves carefully examining your workplace to identify hazards (anything that can cause harm), assessing the chance that those hazards will cause harm and assessing the outcome or consequences of that harm.
By identifying things that can cause harm, we can advise on the best control measures to put in place to reduce the risk.
Risk analysis will reduce the chance of accidents and incidents in workplaces – avoiding unnecessary pain, suffering, disruptions and expensive claims.

Why do I need a Risk Assessment?
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, (HSA, 2017).
