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.

    I can safely say, the service I received from Walker Health and Safety Services was excellent…From the visit to our premises (on Emma's day off!) to the final risk assessment. I was consulted throughout the process, and everything was explained in a way I could understand. It was a very specific assessment that I needed but will definitely use them in the future for risk assessment/health and safety requirements.
