In order to maintain a safe working environment for your workforce, you will need to undertake risk assessments. By law, regardless of the size of your organisation every employer must make a suitable and sufficient assessment of the risks to their employees whilst they are at work.

Risk assessments will help you to identify and focus on the risks that matter most in your workplace; they must be undertaken by a competent person/s. Should you decide to, DDFL Solutions Health and Safety Advisor will act as the competent person, working to help, guide and assist you to identify the hazards and evaluate the risks associated with your workplace.

As a retained client, you will be provided with all relevant risk assessments. I as your Health and Safety Advisor will provide you with all the relevant information and instruction as to how to amend and make them specific to your premises/environment and to review and update these assessments on a regular basis.

Failure to manage risk in your workplace can seriously affect your business, harm your workforce, and could also land you in court.
