5 Steps to Risk Assessment

There is an absolute legal requirement under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations (MHSWR) to carry out a ‘suitable and sufficient’ risk assessment. This means that it must identify all ‘significant risk’. Significant risks are those which are reasonably foreseeable in terms of probability and severe enough in outcome to warrant consideration i.e. they are more than trivial. Risk assessment is a MANAGEMENT responsibility and all but the simplest risk assessments should be carried out by competent staff who are knowledgeable about the event or the activity in question.
