Here's what to do to identify the risks that can cause fatal accidents

 
To prevent fatal accidents, do a risk assessment. This is one of the most important health and safety actions you can do.
 
It aims to identify and assess the types and levels of risks in your workplace. This enables you to deal with them effectively by assessing each area and duty in your workplace and pinpointing the hazards in each. (For example your welder works with a welding touch and that's a hazard.) 
 
Then you must see what risks that hazard can cause. (A welding touch, for example can cause eye damage and burns).
 
By following this process you can find ways to protect your employees from life-threatening accidents and save their lives.


PS: We strongly recommend you check out the Risk Assessment Guide. It has everything you need to ensure your risk assessments are 100% legally compliant
