Office Based Risk Assessments - Demonstrating Compliance
Whilst often time consuming and heavily administrative, workplace risk assessments enable you as an employer to comply with your legal obligations of keeping your employees and visitors safe.
An office risk assessment will help you to identify the risks and hazards associated with the workplace and identify the appropriate controls and training needed to mitigate those risks.
Increasingly, third party stakeholders such as buildings and contents insurers are seeking evidence of compliance with health and safety legal obligations, often requesting copies of up to date risk assessments and internal health and safety policies at renewal.
This introductory workshop is aimed at those with operational responsibilities and will equip you with the tools to identify risks and produce a comprehensive risk assessment document allowing you to evidence your compliance on request. No prior knowledge is required.
