Charity shop risk assessment tool

This tool allows those working in small low-risk charity 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.

About risk assessment
