Office Risk Assessment
Office Risk Assessment
If you employ more than 5 people in an office environment then you are legally obliged to record the significant findings of an office risk assessment. We can provide you with the expert office risk assessment services to ensure you are fully compliant with UK law.
The Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 are the principal regulations by which an office risk assessment must be carried out. Other regulations which apply to health and safety in the office include: Display Screen Equipment (DSE) Workstation assessments, Fire risk assessments and in certain cases, Manual Handling and Hazardous Substances (COSHH) regulations.
General Office Risk Assessment
In each of these cases, the employer is responsible for ensuring that an adequate office risk assessment has been conducted. In the event that this does not occur the employer will be held liable. Penalties for breaching HSE requirements can be very severe, taking the form of heavy fines and loss of accreditation. Therefore, it is vital that you undertake an office risk assessment now.
Completing an office risk assessment for your business
To ensure health and safety in the office, an office risk assessment must be completed to an adequate HSE standard level. This can include assessing the following:
- Display screen equipment (DSE) workstations
- Slips and trips and first aid regulations
- Electrical equipment and fire precautions
- Manual handling and hazardous substances (COSHH)
- Lone/Out of hours working (LOOH)
In order to ensure that an office risk assessment is completed to an adequate level, a competent person is needed. A competent person will be able to: identify the hazards and people at risk, evaluate these and remove/reduce risks, record the findings and provide training where necessary and review and update the risk assessment regularly.
