HSE Revised Guidance

HSE has revised it’s guidance on controlling risks in the workplace. It is no longer called the “Five Steps To Risk Assessment” but the five steps are still there. You can download a free copy of Risk Assessment: A Brief Guide To Controlling Risks In The Workplace from the HSE website.

One quote from the document worth repeating: “A risk assessment is not about creating huge amounts of paperwork, but rather about identifying sensible measures to control the risks in your workplace.”  It’s about what you do, not about what you write.
