Restaurant Risk Assessment
Completing a restaurant risk assessment is a legal obligation for every restaurant owner. Health and safety in a restaurant incorporates a huge variety of legislation. Make sure you know all the facts. We can provide you with specialist restaurant risk assessment services, ensuring that you are fully compliant with UK law.
Under the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974, UK law requires that; all employers and self-employed persons have a duty of care regarding the health and safety of their employees. The General Hygiene Regulations require restaurants to complete a restaurant risk assessment, using the principles of Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP).
In regard to restaurant health and safety, the owner or employer of the business is responsible for ensuring that a sufficient restaurant risk assessment is carried out. In the event that an adequate restaurant risk assessment is not conducted on the premises, the owner or employer of the business will be held accountable. This can result in heavy fines or even jail terms. To protect your workers and your business it is essential that you undertake a restaurant risk assessment.
