Risk Assessment Course Outline:

Step one: Identify the hazards: The first stage of your risk assessment involves identifying the hazards in your workplace.

Step two: Decide who is at risk: Making a checklist of everyone that could be affected by what’s going on in your business is also useful for this step.

Risk Assessment

Step three: Assess the risk and existing control measures: This step is where your judgement comes into play. By evaluating the risks associated with each hazard you have identified, you’re deciding how likely it is that harm will occur from the hazard.

Step four: Record your findings: Although the Management of Health and Safety at Work regulations say you only have to record your risk assessment if the business has five or more employees, it is best practice to record your findings regardless of how many employees you have.

Step five: Monitor and review: The last consideration is monitoring and review of your risk assessment. The final step in the ‘five steps’ process, never really ends as monitoring and review of your risk assessment to make sure it stays valid is an ongoing process.

The ultimate aim of risk assessment is to implement measures to remove or reduce the risks. Monitoring and review of circumstances must occur to see whether the measures implemented have reduced risks effectively and whether more needs to be done.
