Companies are legally required to assess risks in the workplace. At its simplest a risk assessment is an examination of what could cause harm, together with an effective way to avoid or reduce that harm to acceptable levels. The harm can be to people, materials or the environment. The level of control will depend on the severity of the harm that could be caused together with the likelihood that the damaging event will occur.
Accidents and ill health can affect businesses due to lost output, damaged machinery, increased insurance costs and court costs.
Habilis can carry out risk assessments on your behalf at a strategic, project or task level. We work with you to recognise the hazards, evaluate chance and consequences of the hazard being realised, make recommendations for control and review how effective controls are. We will then provide you with a comprehensive system for you to ensure the findings are maintained. Throughout we are keen to keep your business agenda at the centre of our activities.
