How to manage health and safety risks in your business.

What is a risk assessment and why do you need them?

A Risk Assessment is a method of identifying what risks your activity might pose to others, and identify and implement sensible methods to manage them. It’s a document that shows how you have considered safety during the planning phase of works, and what will be done while the job is in progress.

Every business needs to risk assess the activities that they carry out, and who and how they might cause harm to others. (If you have less than 5 employees, you don’t need to document it, but you need to still demonstrate you’ve considered the risks.)

Risk assessments are not only a legal requirement, but its sometimes also necessary to provide proof to people such as your clients and insurers that you are managing safety in your business. Terra Firma 360 will work with your business to identify these risks and provide you a suite of risk assessments applicable to the risks.
