Are your risk assessments worse than useless?
We will develop a system of safety management that helps you ensure risk assessments are legally compliant, the approach is commercially pragmatic, and your people are kept safe. Our experts will not only make your safety system easy to manage, but we are also on the look-out for ways to save you time and money along the way. Our approach is to ensure risk assessments make work tasks easier to complete safely, rather than acting as a bureaucratic barrier.
Can you relate to the following scenario?
Risk assessments are kept in a file that is rarely opened. They are wordy documents, no-one is quite sure what they are supposed to achieve and the significant findings have not been communicated. An extreme example? Well this bureaucratic paper-chase is not as uncommon as you may think. To make matters worse, if you have compiled a legal document that has not been acted upon, the consequences may be worse than had you done absolutely nothing! Good management is everything and we can help to streamline your processes.
Risk assessments must be ‘suitable and sufficient’ and carried out by a ‘competent person’, but can you look in the mirror and tell yourself with confidence (as well as your staff or a public safety inspector) that your risk assessments make a significant contribution to workplace safety? Have you considered how unwritten ‘dynamic risk assessments’ can help? Britrisk Safety will help you answer ‘Yes!’
‘In our dealings with the people at Britrisk Safety, one thing is clear. If they say they will do something, it will happen, it will be of a high standard – and it will be delivered on time. These days regrettably that’s unusual.’
