Current legislation requires all companies to take all reasonable and practicable steps to ensure their workplace procedures and operations are safe. This includes carrying out risk assessment to assess risks in the workplace, often a time consuming operation, and one which may not meet legal requirements if carried out by untrained staff.
FAILURE TO COMPLY, HOWEVER, CAN RESULT IN PROSECUTION LEADING TO HEAVY FINES
OR IMPRISONMENT OR BOTH.
The MNBS Risk Assessment Service
Your risk assessment should never be treated as a one-off document in order to satisfy legislation. The MNBS Risk Assessment Service enables companies to review and revise safety measures as part of their commitment to a proactive Health & Safety Policy. When completed on a regular basis risk assessment identifies, quickly, any shortfalls in safety procedure, allowing your company the opportunity of taking immediate action before they become hazardous and a danger to health.
MNBS - qualified to risk assess, among others, fire safety (visual inspection), COSHH, dangerous machinery, manual handling, workplace noise, personal protective equipment, vehicle movement, display screen equipment, work at height etc.
Essentially, our risk assessment service consists of three parts:
- A detailed assessment of safety hazards throughout your business premises, identifying current preventive/protective measures
- Guidance, as well as proactive help, with any further control measures required for the company to attain legal compliance
- Regular monitoring and review to ensure the assessment remains valid
Should your organisation already have a Health and Safety Officer (HSO) in place, MNBS can assist by taking on their role of completing risk assessments, thereby releasing your HSO to concentrate on other important issues within the business.
Or, if it suits your requirements, MNBS can apply its experience and knowledge from working with other businesses to help TRAIN and DEVELOP your personnel in workplace risk assessment procedures.
Simply contact MNBS to arrange a free, no-obligation, consultation in the strictest confidence to discuss your risk assessment requirements.
