Risk Assessment Services

It is a legal requirement for organisations with 5 or more staff to carry out documented health and safety risk assessments of all of their significant hazards. Although it is your responsibility to undertake risk assessments on your premises.

Walker Health and Safety Services offer risk assessment services and can support you through the process.

If you have 5 or more employees it is a requirement for you to perform a risk assessment to identify and avoid hazards and risks in your workplace. If you have less, it is considered best practice. However, it is not a necessity.

By completing Risk Assessments you will help to prevent occupational accidents and ill health by taking precautionary measures.

The Health & Safety Executive guidance advocates a 5 step approach to risk assessments:

1. Identify the hazards present (a hazard is anything with the potential to cause harm e.g. slippery floors, electrical equipment, lifting heavy objects, stress, machinery, fire etc.).

2. Identify the people at risk from the hazards e.g. employees, contractors, visitors etc. Particularly vulnerable employees should also be considered e.g. young people and new/expectant mothers.

3. Evaluate the risk, taking into account the likelihood and severity of any accidents. Existing controls in place should be identified and evaluated.

4. Record the findings on a suitable form.

5. Review the risk assessment regularly.

Risk assessments are vital to creating a healthy, safe working environment.

You will need to perform a risk assessment to identify and avoid hazards and risks in your workplace, regardless of the size of your business. You can then help to prevent occupational accidents and ill health by taking precautionary measures.

Walker Health and Safety Services can support you through the risk assessment process or can carry out the risk assessments on your behalf. You are still responsible for risk assessments on your premises.

    Having recently started working with Emma personally, she has been very helpful and supportive. I look forward to working with her in the future.

    Libby, Expeditious Services
    We have recently moved our business from two smaller sites into one larger site and our health and safety policies and procedures required an overhaul and updating. I reached out to Emma at Walker Health and Safety Services and from the first phone call we hit it off. The initial contact was relaxed and supportive. Emma has been a great advocate for health and safety and the importance of it. We always look forward to a visit from Emma and Health and Safety visits are no longer a dreaded part of the business. I would highly recommend Walker Health and Safety Services to anyone who is looking for a fresh look at health and safety.

    Great Service from Emma! I telephoned with a simple question, and she went above and beyond to update our Health and Safety Policy. Emma gave up some of her weekends to finish the policy. First-class service from Walker Health and Safety Services. Emma was very friendly and professional, as always.
