Risk assessment is the cornerstone of good health & safety management, and in achieving the overall aim of reducing injures. To keep the approach clear and simple we provide templates to give an indication of the types of hazards that could be encountered and actions that could be taken, however it is extremely important that these templates are amended and reviewed to ensure the hazards that may cause injury are included, or any other hazards not covered are added.
