Risk Assess - Test - Manage
Stage 1 - Risk Assess
Your Covid-19 risk assessment should clearly show that, on the balance of all considerations, the controls implemented reduce the risk as low as reasonably practical. This evidence, in the form of a suitable and sufficient risk assessment, is crucial in the defence of an insurance claim for personal injury or illness or intervention by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) or other regulatory authority.
It is acknowledged that not all businesses have the in-house competency, capability or expertise to utilise the supplied areas requiring improvement and further assistance may be required. An additional service is available whereby, our health and safety consultant will advise, with specific detail, the areas requiring further consideration and offer suggestions to assist you with the document’s further development.
