A risk assessment is a process of evaluating what can affect the health and safety of employees at work. It looks at what could cause harm and what is needed to stop it from causing harm, and assesses the effectiveness of any control measures in place. Recommendations for extra control measures can then be made on the basis that they are “reasonably practicable”.

This topic looks at legal obligations, how to conduct a risk assessment and how the process can minimise health and safety risks in an organisation.
