Why use a risk assessment?

Risk Assessments are an essential part of any business, not only because of their practical use, but they are required by law (in most countries).

In the United States, you are required to document anything if your business has more than 5 employees. Risk assessments must be conducted before employees go to work on current or new work processes to ensure they recognize problems before they have a chance to surface and prevent people from harming themselves, others or the business.

You will already have some measures in place to protect you and your employees. But a risk assessment must be made to ensure those measures are both known and up-to-date.

5 steps to make your own risk assessment

Step 1: Identify the hazard

What is it about the activities, processes or substances used that could injure your employees or harm their health?

Step 2: Who may be harmed and how?

Ask your employees what they think the hazards are, as they may notice things that are not obvious to you and may have some good ideas on how to control the risks.

Think about people who might not be in the workplace all the time, such as visitors, contractors and maintenance workers

Step 3: Evaluate the risk and decide on precautions

This means employers must consider how likely it is that each hazard could cause harm. This will determine whether or not your employer should reduce the level of risk.

Step 4: Record your significant findings

Use a survey to write down your findings

Step 5: Review your risk assessment and update if necessary

Look at your risk assessment again and ask yourself:

  • Have there been any significant changes?
  • Are there improvements you still need to make?
  • Have your workers spotted a problem?
  • Have you learned anything from accidents or near misses?

Risk Assessment Template Format

A risk assessment should be able to answer the following questions:

  • What is the risk or potential hazard in question?
  • Who is at risk?
  • What measures have we taken to control those risks?
  • What rating do we assign to this risk? How big of a threat does it pose?
  • What measures do we have in place to prevent these risks from occurring?
  • Whose responsibility is it to control this risk?

It is important that the assessment details can be collected efficiently and that they are automatically transferred to a central storage system where the data can be analyzed.
Devices such as a tablet or smartphone are ideally suited for this task. Risk assessing through paper forms, pdf or word documents is also possible but has the disadvantage that the data still needs to be transferred to a central system as a separate action, which is error-prone and time-consuming.
