The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999.

The fundamental cornerstone of any health and safety management system is Risk Assessment. This involves the identification of potential hazards associated with a process, activity or area, estimating and evaluating the associated risks and then introducing appropriate workplace precautions to control the identified risks.

There is also a legal requirement to carry out risk assessments under current safety legislation such as The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations.

Our Approach

Your ACE health and safety consultant would initially identify the tasks, processes or activities that require a risk assessment. Next they would identify all reasonably foreseeable hazards, determine the likelihood of injury, and the likely severity of injury (in terms of harm) for each hazard and on completion of each assessment a quantified risk rating will be allocated to each hazard which can then be used to prioritise actions and manage resources.
