ACS Risk Management
The introduction of the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 reinforced the general obligation placed upon the employer by the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, to provide a safe working environment and a safe system of work for their employees, contractors and anyone else they might reasonably expect to be affected by their actions.
The Regulations call for a formal assessment of the hazards and risks associated with proposed and existing work practices. They apply to employers and the self-employed alike, regardless of the number of people employed and the nature of the work.
The success or failure of any safety management system depends upon its having in place an adequate system for identifying and controlling risk. Risk assessment and management is essentially a three stage process:
- Identification of all hazards associated with an operation or process
- Evaluation of the risks that are likely to occur
- Management of the risks by identifying measures to limit the exposure to harm, monitoring and controlling their effectiveness.
What cover is available?
When carrying out a risk assessment, the following must be considered:
- The site location – hazards arising from the surrounding environment
- Prevailing weather conditions
- The task to be carried out
- The trades involved, including tools, equipment and the activities they will undertake
- Other persons who may be affected
Each trade or process activity must be considered to establish which hazards apply to it.
