Creating a safe working environment for your people
The Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations 1999 require every Employer and Self-Employed person to make a suitable and sufficient assessment of the risks to the health & safety of his employees whilst at work, and the risks to others not in his employ who may be effected by his undertakings.
In addition where the employer employs five or more employees (including part-time staff) then he has to record the findings.
This is an area where many businesses have a short fall in their Health & Safety Management. Failing to undertake a sufficient assessment can lead to prosecution by the H.S.E.
