RISK ASSESSMENTS

There is a specific legal requirement for risk assessments to be carried out for all work activities.  The employer must ensure that sufficient time is allowed for the risk assessment process prior to the work activity commencing.  The employer must ensure that those expected to carry out the risk assessments are competent to do so.

Akeva can either carry out the risk assessments for your company or train your staff to carry them out themselves (for further information on training, see the 'Training' section of this website).

 

 

To assist your staff Akeva can develop a manual of generic risk assessments specific to your business.  The manual can be used to either speed up the risk assessment process or simply used as a guide.

Other risk assessments that Akeva can carry out include:

  • Manual Handling Assessments
  • DSE (Display Screen Equipment) Assessments
  • Fire Risk Assessments
  • Work at Height Assessments
  • CoSHH Assessments
