It will be undertaken for all members of staff, work activities and systems annually. It consists in identifying the hazards; identifying who might be harmed and how; evaluating the risks from identified hazards. If there are no hazards, there are no risks. Where risks are already controlled in some way, the effectiveness of those controls needs to be considered when assessing the extent of the risk that remains. The results of the risk assessments will be recorded in writing, and safety procedures adjusted to ensure adequate levels of health safety and welfare.
