Want to easily find out if your employees are safe at work? Do this risk assessment to protect them from any risks they face


You must conduct a continuous risk assessment.
 
A continuous risk assessment is an informal risk assessment you do on an ongoing basis in your workplace, says Risk Assessment: The 100% legally compliant risk assessment toolkit.
 
During this assessment you (supervisor) watch your employees as they do their work. After your observations, you assess the risks that are present when your employees do their work.
 
If the risks are too high, you can then stop your employees from doing the work and quickly find a way to remove the danger. This way, your employees don't get hurt.
 

A continuous risk assessment is an important part of day-to-day management
 

You can take a few minutes from your day, every day to watch your employees as they work. There's no better way to spot risks and quickly prevent them.
 
labournet.com advises that your company mustn't only strive for continual improvement when it comes to productivity, quality and profit. It must also strive for it when it comes to health and safety.
 
To do this well, always remember to have the cycle of Planning > Implementation > Evaluation > Review, in place.
 
This means, even though your continuous risk assessment is an information process, you must always:
 
  • Plan how you'll do it;
  • Implement the risk controls after you identify risks;
  • Check if your control measures are working; and
  • Review your health and safety management system as a whole so you can improve it.
 
Remember, 'leaving the safety and health of your employees to chance isn't only poor business management, it's also illegal,' warns labournet.com. It could get you penalties from the DoL and a jail term.
 
So make sure you conduct a continuous assessment to easily find out if your employees are safe when they work. This way, you can protect them from any risks that come their way.
