A risk assessment is a simple careful examination of what, in your work, could cause harm to people. It enables you to weigh up whether you have taken enough precautions or should do more to prevent harm/injury – everyone has a right to be protected from harm/injury caused by a failure to take reasonable control measures.
Accidents and ill health can ruin lives and affect business if the output is lost, machinery is damaged, insurance costs increase, and can possibly result in the injured party bringing court action for damages. You are legally required to assess the risks in your workplace so that you put in place a plan to control the risks.
