Workplace Health and Safety

Risk assessments should be the core of any good Workplace Health and Safety policy

When you use Risk Assessments the right way, they can turn a dangerous worksite into a safe environment for years to come

A safe workplace is one of the most important things that an employer must provide for all employees

If you aren’t completing regular risk assessments at your business, you could be failing to meet your Work Health and Safety obligations!

When you are conducting a risk assessment, it is vital that you complete each of the five steps involved:

  1. Identify the hazards.
  2. Identify who could be harmed and how.
  3. Evaluate the risks and take action to correct them.
  4. Record your risk assessments and track them.
  5. Review your risk assessments to ensure that nothing has changed, and they remain up to date.

Risk assessment findings should be communicated at a company level so that anyone impacted by the hazards identified is aware of them, and the controls you have put in place to protect people.

The ultimate goal for any company is to complete thorough risk assessments which identify all hazards and implement controls to reduce or remove the risk of harm to employees, contractors, and visitors.

Regardless of where you work or what your company does, there are a variety of risks, including wet floors, loading areas, lighting, chemicals, and so much more!

It doesn’t matter if you’re in the construction industry or administration business; identifying risks and completing risk assessments are a vital part of your WHS plan.
