Risk assessments are the corner stone to all organisations health and safety arrangements. Health and safety is all about assessing risks and this is the exact nature of a risk assessment. The true list of risk assessments is pretty much endless, as a risk assessment is basically an in-depth inspection into any work activity that could cause harm or injury to any employee. To eliminate all risk is virtually impossible, which is why the law states that employers are ‘required to protect people so far as is reasonably practicable’.
