Hazard Identification & Risk Assessments


In order to manage workplace health and wellness, it is necessary to understand risk assessment and how to uphold good health and safety standards. Hazards in the workplace generally consist of anything that can cause harm or ill health and can range widely, from asbestos to high noise levels. In order to help your company identify any potential risks and comply with all legal requirements, have our experienced team at OHSS help organise and support your risk assessments.

Hazard identification and risk assessment are crucial tools in the management of and the prevention of accidents or possible harm. Danger can arise in many forms, and sometimes it is difficult to understand what classifies as a risk. We can help your company identify hazards, assess risks, and help manage adverse situations to prevent any exposure or harm.

Once we have identified any areas of risk, we assess the severity of each one and compile a full risk assessment report. Our expert team also implements risk auditing and risk assessment training, helping your workforce to adopt a preventative methodology that works best for your company. Risk assessments help you target hazards that have potential to cause harm, and put improvements or control measures in place to reduce the opportunity for injury.

Engaging in these preventative and control measures can also benefit workplace productivity, reduce the risk of ill health or injury, and reduce possible compensation claims. At OHSS, our focus is on reducing real risk, and ensuring any risks found are managed through the proper implementation of relevant control measures.
