Workplace Risk Assessment
EVERY EMPLOYER HAS A STATUTORY DUTY TO ENSURE THAT "WORKPLACE" IS SAFE TO USE
Employers must afford their employees a safe and healthy workplace and working environment. Factors such as workspace, lighting, ventilation, temperature, cleanliness, traffic routes, falls, building structures (i.e. windows, doors, and gates etc.) and welfare facilities (i.e. toilets, wash- stations, changing accommodation) should all be taken into account.
A workplace risk assessment breaks a workplace down in to specific areas to be assessed;
•Maintenance of workplace, and of equipment, devices and systems.
•Temperature in indoor workplaces.
•Cleanliness and waste materials.
•Room dimensions and space.
•Workstations and seating.
•Condition of floors and traffic routes.
•Falls or falling objects.
•Windows, and transparent or translucent doors, gates and walls.
•Windows, skylights and ventilators.
•Ability to clean windows etc. safely.
•Organisation etc. of traffic routes.
•Doors and gates.
•Escalators and moving walkways.
•Accommodation for clothing.
•Facilities for changing clothing.
•Facilities for rest and to eat meals.
Workplace risk assessments should guide the risk assessor through the workplace risk assessment ensuring the risk assessment is undertaken in a plan and systematic way.
