Conducting a Hazard & Risk Assessment
It is a legal requirement of the Work Health & Safety Regulations that “A Person Conducting a Business or Undertaking in managing risks to health & safety, MUST identify reasonably foreseeable hazards that could give rise to risks to health & safety“.
Note it does not mandate only businesses with employees but all businesses must identify hazards (clients, suppliers, contractors, public may be impacted by your actions)
You need to Know:
- Legal Obligations
- Assessing the Risk
- Mitigating the Risk
- Prioritising the Risk
- Creating Action Plans
Without a Hazard & Risk Assessment all documentation, procedures and policies are invalid as they have not been assessed against risk. It is also a breach against the WHS legislation as you cannot demonstrate that you have analysed potential harm to workers.
