This tool allows those working in small low-risk shops to do their risk assessment quickly and easily.
The Health and Safety Executive has developed this tool, in consultation with Local Government Regulation, and supports the approach for these businesses.
It enables you to produce a tailored assessment by selecting the relevant hazards and thinking about how you control them.
The assessment should take around 20 minutes.
Risk assessment is a legal requirement, and if you employ five or more people you must record the significant findings of the assessment.
But it is not difficult and you do not need to buy external advice to help you with it. You know your business better than anyone else.
