As a SafetyWallet member, why conduct a risk assessment?
The main reason is that it's really important! Often, when the Department of Labour conduct a visit to your premises, the risk assessment is usually one of the first documents the Inspector will ask for to review. By conducting a risk assessment of your business, you fulfil an important requirement of the OHS Act, identifying health and safety hazards within your business. At the same time, it provides evidence of the initial steps you have taken to begin addressing health and safety needs within your business.
