Risk Assessments

Employers are under a statutory duty under Section 19 of the Safety Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 to arrange for a “ Competent person” to assess all risks arising within the workplace or duties within their job role.

Risk Assessment encourages the identification of equipment/items and situations that may cause accidental injuries or health problems and is designed to focus on what could happen before it does happen.

What are the benefits?

  • Preventing accidents, injury and ill health and their associated costs
  • Reducing deficiencies in services or products
  • Increasing staff morale
  • Reducing damage and uninsured losses and claims for compensation
