H&S Risk Assessments – Workplace
Essential for effective Health & Safety management in the construction Industry, workplace risk assessments will identify potentially hazardous areas and business activities. Our Health and Safety Consultant looks at the health and safety risks to people involved in each of those areas and activities, taking relevant health and safety regulations into account. (Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, Regulation 3).
In some cases, the general risk assessment will point to a need for more detailed risk assessments for specific hazards, in which case we can arrange these for you too.
Safe Systems of Work
Safe systems of work are also known as working procedures, standard operating procedures and method statements. Their purpose is to identify and document the way work should be done by your employees in order for them to work safely, particularly with regard to hazardous work processes.
All employers are required by law to implement Safe Systems of Work. We recommend a structured process to identify the relevant activities and hazard, then carry out a risk assessment on each one, using the findings to identify and document your procedures.
