      FAQs

      What is a Risk Assessment?

      A risk assessment is a systematic process for identifying and evaluating potential risks that could negatively impact individuals, assets, the environment, or organisations. The purpose of risk assessment is to determine the magnitude of potential hazards and decide on appropriate ways to eliminate or control the risk.

      Here’s how it typically works:

      1. Identify Hazards: Determine what could potentially cause harm. This includes looking at all aspects of the work environment, processes, and any external factors that could contribute to risk.
      2. Analyse Risks: Assess the likelihood and consequences of these hazards. This involves considering the severity of the harm that could occur and the probability of it occurring.
      3. Evaluate Risks: Decide whether the existing precautions are adequate or if more should be done. The aim is to minimise risks as much as reasonably practicable.
      4. Record Findings: Document the hazards, their associated risks, and the measures that are in place to mitigate them. This record is crucial for communication and ongoing management of risks.
      5. Review and Update: Regularly revisit the risk assessment to ensure it remains relevant and up-to-date, especially when changes in working practices or new hazards arise.

      Risk assessments are essential for maintaining safety and compliance in various sectors, including construction, manufacturing, healthcare, and education, among others. They help prevent accidents and injuries, thereby ensuring a safer workplace and environment.

      When should a Risk Assessment should be conducted?

      A risk assessment should be conducted whenever there are potential risks associated with a work activity, process, or environment that might affect the safety and health of individuals or the integrity of assets and operations. It is particularly crucial when introducing new processes, equipment, or chemicals; changing work practices or layouts; responding to accidents or near-misses; and regularly as part of an ongoing safety management program. Additionally, it is legally required in many areas for businesses to perform risk assessments to ensure workplace safety and compliance with health and safety regulations.
