RISK ASSESSMENT

We aim to provide honest and practical solutions to the health and safety needs of your organisation, without the jargon or red tape. To assist you in compliance with Health & Safety Law and provide a safer more productive environment.

We recognise in this ‘one size fits all culture’ that both small and large companies require individual solutions to the specific needs of their organisation.

We can provide a managed service and take away the stress and strain, or if you wish we can provide a part managed advice service and support.

We at M&P Fire Protection have a wide range of experience and skills from Fire & Rescue Officers to competent H&S practitioners, with an understanding of current H&S legislation and how to apply this law to your business in a practical efficient way that is specific to your needs.

Feel free to contact us, we are friendly, approachable and will offer a very competitive quote for your Risk Assessment.

As an employer, you are required to follow health and safety law to ensure that your workplace environment is safe and that the regulations are followed accurately.

 

Here’s a 10 point quick summary of what you need to do:

 

Identify any potential hazards and evaluate the extent of the risks to your employees and take appropriate action. A further assessment should be carried out after an accident has occurred.
If you employ 5 or more people such arrangements typically include planning, organising, controlling, monitoring and undertaking a review of the ‘protective and preventative measures’ that are in place. You must appoint at least one competent person to help you with these tasks.
You must not employ children under school-leaving age unless their employment is part of an authorised scheme.
Compile contact numbers of first aid assistance and emergency medical care for when injuries arise.
Inform them of the health and safety risks, the preventative and protective measures in place and the name of your competent person. Be aware of communication issues such as language differences.
Provide appropriate instructions and information.
Train employees as part of induction, upon transfer to a new job or area or when new equipment is introduced. Keep training records as evidence of this.
Make sure that your employees let you know of any health and safety shortcomings.
If an accident occurs, make a record of your findings during your investigation.
Log all the above actions taken.
