General risk assessments

General risk assessments systematically cover all the risks associated with activities that are undertaken in the workplace.

It’s all about demonstrating that you have a system in place to identify what could cause harm to your employee and how, what you have in place to minimise harm and if that’s not sufficient, what additional measures are required.

Whatever the case, our consultants will work with you, look at your organisation’s activities and ensure that your general risk assessments capture all significant risks.

COSHH Assessments

If you work with hazardous substances where there might be a risk of exposure, you’re legally required to complete a COSHH assessment. COSHH assessments ONLY deal with substances and are therefore, a bit more involved than a general risk assessment.

Our COSHH assessment will look at the different substances that are being used that could cause harm when employees are exposed. We’ll work with you to ensure that adequate control measures are being used to reduce exposure and provide training to your employees so that they aware of the risks of working with hazardous substances.

Display screen equipment (DSE) assessments

If you use display screen equipment, such as PC monitors, keyboard, mouse, handheld devices, etc; and you are classified as a “user”, you’re legally required to have a DSE assessment carried out on your workstation.

Although display screen equipment doesn’t carry any immediate risk to your employees, an incorrectly set up workstation can cause upper limb injuries over time. Our health and safety consultants can either carry out DSE assessments on your behalf of those workers who are classified as “users” within your organisation, or provide you with training in the process.

We can also provide training which is another requirement for your employees, using our tutor-led display screen equipment training..
