Risk Assessment Toolbox Talk (UK) Mobile App
A key step in protecting a business, managing employees and complying with the law is having a risk assessment in place.
How does it work?
The importance of having this document is to understand the likelihood of potential risks that can cause harm. Most risk assessment measures are simple, providing guidance to avoid minor mishaps. There are numerous potential hazards in the workplace – it is impossible to provide a completely hazard/risk free working environment. To reflect this, there is an acceptable level of risk which can be achieved when all reasonably practicable controls have been put in place. This means that all reasonable precautions have been taken to reduce the risks to an acceptably low level relying heavily on the judgement of the person conducting the risk assessment. The Risk Assessment Toolbox Talk (UK) app offers more information about the importance of having a complete risk assessment. Failure to adequately manage risks can be said to be the source of most work place incidents. Having a complete risk assessment has and does save lives.
