Under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, a risk assessment is a legal requirement that involves identifying sensible measures to control hazards if you’re an employer, your work activity is mentioned in the regulations, or your work poses a risk to others.

 

With that in mind, as the weather gets colder, what are some ways you can make your workplace safer? Remember prevention is always better than reaction!

 

To do a risk assessment, you must think about where the hazards are in your workplace, and what can be done to minimise these hazards.

 

Where can hazards be identified?

Think about your own business and where else you may find hazards besides the few examples mentioned above.

 

What are the hazards?

Again, think about your own business and what hazards could pose a specific risk to your business.

 

What can you do?

 

Some other measures to ensure safety in winter is carrying out regular checks and talking to employees about any concerns they have.
