What is the law on risk assessment?
The law says that as an employer you must assess and control the risks in your workplace.
You need to think about what might cause harm to people and decide whether you are doing enough to prevent that harm.
If you have five or more employees you must write down what you’ve found. That record should include:
- the hazards (things that may cause harm)
- how they may harm people
- what you are already doing to control the risks
You must review and update this record, for example if anything changes.
