Risk Assessments are crucial to an effective Health and Safety Management System as they form the basis for demonstrating that employers understand the hazards associated with their work activities and the framework for ensuring that suitable and sufficient control measures are put in place.

There is a legal responsibility (under The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999) to assess the risks that exist within the workplace. Anyone carrying out risk assessments should be competent to do so.
