The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 states that suitable and sufficient risk assessments are carried out for significant hazards. This applies to:

  • The risks to the health and safety of all employees whilst they are at work
  • The risks to health and safety of all persons (including non employees) arising from a company’s operations

The regulations specify that organisations employing 5 or more staff must document these risk assessments.

Risk assessments should be regularly reviewed (typically annually) or when changes occur e.g. changes to legislation, change in equipment and materials etc.
