Workplace Risk Assessments

It is a legal requirement under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 (Regulation 3) for every organisation to undertake suitable and sufficient Workplace Assessments for its activities which may create risk to its employees, visitors, sub-contractors and general public.

Risk Assessments are an essential part of health and safety arrangements.

There is a tendency to have Workplace Risk Assessments carried out for every possible activity no matter how trivial. This approach kills the entire purpose of undertaking Risk Assessments as the significant risk activities get buried under a huge number of insignificant tasks.

We at SafeScope take a robust approach based on the Pareto Principle (80-20) where we help our Clients to identify and assess their main significant risk activities which account for their main serious health and safety risk exposure. This approach ensures that the resources are more efficiently allocated for control measures in reducing the Client's liabilities.

Following the assessments, we assist our Clients in defining the suggested control measures and actions for both their standard organisational activities or one off specific activities as required under the law.
