The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 place a statutory requirement on you to assess risks to the health and safety of anyone who may be affected by your activities.
The Management Regulations require you to examine what in your work could cause harm to people so that you can weigh up whether you have taken enough precautions, or should do more to meet what the law says you must do.
The five steps to risk assessment are:
- Identify the hazards
- Decide who might be harmed and how
- Evaluate the risks arising from the hazards and decide whether your existing precautions are adequate or whether more should be done
- If satisfied, record the findings of the assessment and inform relevant personnel of the findings of the assessment
- Review and revise the assessment from time to time
Do people in your organisation understand the potential hazards that can occur when using compressed and liquefied gases? Our workshops provide delegates with an awareness of the hazards and potential risks when using gases which enable them to undertake an active role in the risk assessment process.
We offer a gas-specific Risk Assessment package that provides organisations with an invaluable overview of the hazards and risks that may be present within the workplace and readily identifies high-risk activities that require immediate attention as well as methodologies to reduce risk levels and ensure compliance with relevant Legislation, Codes of Practice and Guidance Notes.
