Risk management

Risk management involves looking at the risks that arise in a workplace and putting sensible measures in place to control them. By doing this, you can protect yourself, your employees and members of the public.

As an employer, the law requires you to assess and manage safety risks. For most businesses, this is not difficult to do.

If you have five or more employees at your workplace, you are required to have a written record of your risk assessment and a written safety policy.

Need help with a risk assessment?

Have a look at the Health and Safety Executive's Risk assessment & risk management advice web pages.

These example risk assessments show you what a record of risk assessment might look like.

Risk assessments should not be bureaucratic exercises but about practical measures to protect people from harm and injury.
