Construction Risk Assessments Currently Available

As an employer, you have a legal duty to assess the health and safety risks that your employees are exposed to. You also need to take into consideration other people in the vicinity of your working area - such as other contractors, stakeholders or members of the public.

To do this, you need to think about what might cause harm to people and decide whether you are taking reasonable steps to prevent that harm. This is known as a risk assessment and it is something you are required by law to carry out.

The level of detail in a risk assessment should be proportionate to the risk and appropriate to the nature of the work. Insignificant risks can usually be ignored, as can risks arising from routine activities associated with life in general: unless the work activity compounds or significantly alters those risks.

You are probably already taking steps to protect your employees, but a risk assessment will help you decide whether you have covered all that you need to. A risk assessment can help you identify control measures in more detail. The law states that a risk assessment must be 'suitable and sufficient', i.e. it should show that you have considered the following:

  • Identified the hazard or hazards.
  • Decided who might be harmed and/or affected.
  • Evaluated the risks and decided on control measures.
  • Recorded your findings.
  • Reviewed the risk assessment and updated if necessary.

A risk assessment is not about creating unwanted paperwork, but rather about identifying sensible measures to control the risks in and around the working area.
