The philosophy of risk assessment as a management tool for controlling health and safety hazards in the workplace has been built in to most UK health and safety legislation. Usually employers are required to carry out a risk assessment to identify potential health and safety hazards in all workplaces. Where risks are significant, employers must eliminate the hazard or adequately control the risks. In many cases employers must use Risk Assessment Templates for specific hazards e.g. hazardous substances, display screen equipment. To help ensure risk assessments meet legislative requirements Risk Assessment Services have devised a range of Risk Assessment services to carry out the risk assessment in a systematic way.
