How do I carry out a risk assessment?

A risk assessment is not about creating huge amounts of paperwork. It helps identify sensible measures to control the risks in your workplace.

The Health and Safety Executive website provides guidance and tools, including example risk assessments, to help businesses understand what they need to do to assess and control health and safety risks in the workplace and comply with health and safety law. Although written with small businesses in mind, these principles are relevant to all businesses.
