Flooring Risk Assessment
Flooring Risk Assessment
All UK employers and the self-employed must conduct a flooring risk assessment of their work premises. This is a legal requirement.
We can provide you with the specialist health and safety services you require, in order to ensure your business is fully compliant with UK law.
Following the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992, all floors must be suitable, in a good condition and free from obstruction. Depending on the type and purpose of your business, flooring regulations can vary.
Under UK law, the employer or the self-employed has a legal requirement to ensure the flooring of their work premises is safe by conducting a flooring risk assessment. In the event that an adequate flooring risk assessment has not been conducted, the employer or the self-employed will be held accountable. Consequences of breaching the regulations can be severe, taking the form of heavy fines, large compensation claims and even jail time. Therefore, it is essential that your business completes a flooring risk assessment now.
Conducting a flooring risk assessment for your work premises
A flooring risk assessment will include consideration of the following aspects:
- Assessing the slip resistance of the flooring
- Assessing what liquids used in the workplace are at risk of contaminating the flooring
- Ensuring employees wear the appropriate footwear
- Providing employees with information on how to clean up spillages immediately
- Updating and reviewing the assessment where necessary.
