What does the HSE say about assessing risk?

A risk assessment is nothing more than a

careful examination of 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 prevent harm.


The aim is to make sure that no one gets hurt or becomes ill. Accidents and ill health can ruin lives, and affect your business too if output is lost, machinery is damaged, insurance costs increase, or you have to go to court. You are legally required to assess the risks in your workplace.


The important things you need to decide are whether a hazard is significant, and whether you have it covered by satisfactory precautions so that the risk is small.


You need to check this when you assess the risks. For instance, electricity can kill but the risk of it doing so in an office environment is remote, provided that ‘live’ components are insulated and metal casings earthed.

Risk Assessments - are you trained to carry them out?
