- Step-by-step informative risk assessment guide
According to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), a risk assessment should be carried out every time a business introduces new substances, machines or procedures that might lead to new hazards for their staff or visitors; examples include if a new job is introduced which brings new hazards with it, if an employee is breastfeeding or pregnant, and her work might bring any risk to her or her baby, or if an employee develops a condition which might affect what work they can do.
A risk assessment is simply a thorough check of any hazards in and around the business premises, to identify any areas which might need to be improved or corrected for maximum safety.
This poster describes in detail the 5 steps for a risk assessment, which are: the identification of hazards; noting who might be harmed and, if so, how; evaluating what the risk is and deciding on suitable measures; noting down who will be responsible for implementing the measures and by when; and recording all the findings and continuing to monitor and review the situation.
Our risk assessment poster is available in a range of sizes (A4, A3 or A2) and a choice of materials (either 80% recycled rigid plastic, laminated paper or semi-rigid plastic) suitable for different environments to provide a succinct and handy reminder when it comes time to complete a risk assessment.
Your risk assessments are a vital tool to improve safety and working conditions for your staff, prevent accidents and will also help your business comply with health and safety laws.
To further safeguard your personnel and premises, we also stock a variety of other health and safety posters, such as the HSE Health and Safety Law Poster with clear, easy-to-understand text, or the Fire Safety Poster.
