Risk Assessment

As a SafetyWallet member I need to conduct a risk assessment. What is a risk assessment?

A risk assessment is a really cool and important tool which is used in health and safety. Through it, all workplace hazards are identified, evaluated and quantified. This allows them to be ranked from the most serious to the least serious. This is really cool because it acts as guide providing direction on which health and safety actions are the most urgent to fix.

Next, preventative actions, known as control measures, are determined. This is the fun part because by putting theses control measures into place, the risk posed by the identified hazards is reduced. As this happens your compliance gets better and as this improves so too do your rewards. Isn't that awesome?
